easy trail to test gear. besides that very disappointing. most of the trail was next to fields and half of what use to be the woods part has been cutt down and is now a field of wood chips.

Good trail for first season hike

Overall good trail. I did it as a solo overnight trip to test out some new gear. A good portion of the trail is on grass and it’s well marked the entire way. Trail was extremely muddy and waterlogged. Views of the lake were nice. There are 6 campsites, all with fire pits and some with benches/picnic tables. It’s a nice beginner hike.

Drove from Ft Wayne to do a photo session with our dogs and we were not disappointed! We’ve gone to all the trails around the city and wanted to go somewhere with more...everything! This was it! The trails were well maintained and well directed. Our dogs had a blast during the session at the waterfall and we had a blast watching them! Will come back, for sure!

Easy hike and the trail was very well maintained

Salamonie State Forest and Dam have plenty of trails hike, with scenic rivers, lakes and cliffs . Not all of the trails tie together. Many are separate and in different locations in the forest. The trail path's are not clearly marked and it can be easy to become disoriented and lose your way. In certain areas you are allowed to fish, hunt and camp. Both primitive and RV. The campgrounds are not very well maintained nor are they anything to marvel at. Overall it's a solid place to visit if you're within an hour travel time. I've been coming here since I was a child and will continue to do so but for no more than the hiking and fishing.

The trail was marked very well. We just had a whole mess of rain, so it was pretty muddy, naturally. We tried to get water from the lake, access can be difficult depending on where you're at. I don't have a reference point, but we changed the name to Siltamonie Lake. Getting water might be difficult.

It is a really good trail to break-in a beginner backpacker or hiker.

The begging and ending of the trail (same route) are mostly plain, either walking parallel to the road or cornfield. I did the trail on a Saturday after about a week of rain and the plain areas of the trail were basically a marsh. The middle chunk of the trail, where the campsites are located are wooded scenic for northern Indiana.

The trail is well marked, possibly a little too well marked taking away a sense of adventure. You're also never too far from the state roads and can hear cars driving by in the distant. With that said the trail was great to get my pup back into backpacking shape and I would suggest to anyone wanting a quick easy camp, or beginners.

I’ve been here twice and both times were such a life changing experience. However, the first time I completed this trail, there was a flood. The second time, our technology died and we had to hike in the dark without light. Even though these things happened, this has become a tradition that my friends and I have begun. I highly suggest this trail.

This is a wonderful trail for a beginner, during the summer and fall months it’s even more fantastic. They have even added more backpacking sites! There’s 7 of them now and all of them have amazing views. There are a few steep hills to climb at the backside of the trail but take your time and you can do it!

Beautiful and lots to explore! Will definitely be back.

I'm a beginner, I thought this trail was fun, beautiful, and would come back without a doubt. Scenic waterfalls and views of the river and nature in general.

Good trail, brought my pregnant wife along, and had lunch on the waterfall, we loved it.

fun in the snow, saw a super cool waterfall and climbed up inside with the ice.

Short loop. I measured 1.6 miles. Very well marked trails. Some beautiful views of small waterfalls and the Gorge. Easy jaunt through the trees. [Might b dangerous for small kids if not carefully supervised due to the heights and "cliffs" in some areas of the trail.]

A lake, river, and few waterfalls to see. Trails are not marked the best but not totally impossible to navigate with a little planning and a map.

Beautiful loop trail along a creek and through a woods. Saw a snake in a pine tree here!

Absolutely one of my favorite local hikes! Many trails to choose from featuring a pond, a river, and a few small waterfalls! Kokiwanee has it all!

Well maintained trail with clear signage. Good for beginners. Has six campsites and site 6 has the best view. You could easily hike the entire trail in a day, but it is also a great place to camp/test gear for larger backpacking trips.

Giving three stars because too much of the trail is prairie. The areas of forest are much more scenic (beautiful in the fall), but I'm not a fan of the prairie areas.

**Deer hunters are present in the fall so be aware and wear something bright orange.

Loved it in the fall last year. Great beginning backpacking trail.

If you are camping site 6 is by far the best. The hike is underwhelming. First 3 miles are pretty much walking alongside cornfields . Backside of the hike has some elevation but is nice and scenic with the water in your view most of the time. We had a lot of fun.

One of our favorites in Indy. Love the new signage as well, makes it much easier to find out way.

Solo overnight trip. Majority of hike is flat, averaged 3.3 mph with 25 lb overnight loadout. Campsite 6 had great view of the lake.

Average trail. But the waterfall was cool.

Great little spot for a hike with the kids. There are som great views overlooking the run and also a nice stretch of meadow trails. Beautiful in winter.

This is one of the nicest spots along this stretch of the Wabash River valley.

Nice hike back to the river and to see some small waterfalls. Start at the trailhead and go west, trail gets more interesting as you go. Couple short climbs and foot work make you breathe a little harder.
