This is the long trail in Fort Harrison. Beautiful trail with loads of trees and wildlife. Little slick in spots after the rain but not too bad

amazing trail. moderate level. can be 8 mile long, or 10 mile long if you take longer in-built paths. great trail to build up your skill as it offers all types of terrain. check weather before coming as trails are closed after rain for maintenance. love going there regularly.

The trails are pretty but definitely need better markings. Especially where trail 2 comes out near the trailside shelter. On the map it looks like it runs parallel to that shelter and the swings further north. There’s a trail marker slightly hidden there that sends you down a creek bed which I’m pretty sure isn’t the actual trail. Then, when 3 and 2 split off there are markers but if you take the trail 2 loop you are in your own for markers until you get to the intersection of the trail leading to campground A. It needs more markers since there are a few side trails that cause you to question which way to go. Trail 3, which was pretty much a straight line and the easiest to follow, had the most markers.

I did use one of the shelter restrooms and it was clean and well stocked. The gate attendant was very friendly.

Not what we expected. Very secluded at the end of a dead end road. The trail was very over grown in areas, very little scenery and some portions were in bad shape related to horses. The biggest issue we had is the area is badly invested with TICKS!. This is not a trail we will do againn. There are too many other beautiful trails. No area to sit either before or aftert the trail.

Mostly shady and flat with somewhat pretty views of ponds and river. However, many unappealing industrial sights, too. Bridges and tunnels add variety but are not picturesque. I would not travel far to use this trail.

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.

Nice trail. Moderate difficulty but nothing ridiculous. Easy to follow. I was never confused about which way to go unlike many trails around Indiana. I would pack a sandwich and or snacks. I did the 10.5 miles in 5:10 with a stop to make lunch. There are lots of trees down that you can navigate around. Didnt see a single tick.

It reminds me of the Shoen creek trail and Lawrence creek trail in Ft Ben Harrison State Park except 10miles.

Great trail, decent amount of elevation change. Nice views and fun terrain. Would categorize it as a moderate trail run for sure, it's not easy. Not much traffic so that was very nice, certainly a hidden gem. Quite a few downed trees in the trail but was warned about that at the front gate.

This was a pleasant hike through many old trees. I saw a fox., a couple of cool woodpeckers, raccoons, birds, and a bunny. This was pure trees and trails. Some of the paths repeat so it’s really more of a 2.5 mile hike if you don’t go in circles a bunch. This was a quiet nice location.

Detoured off the trail to explore “stack rock”. Always have a good time there!

Nice trail. We got a bit turned around at one point and looped back to somewhere else on the trail. But we were able to take a shortcut back to our car from where we ended up. It was really pretty though. Nice flowers and beautiful trees. Very wooded, easy trail to hike.

We went for the day with our two dogs. We all loved it and great trails and beautiful views. We went swimming at the beach as well at the waterfall. The only down side was it was super busy at the beach and the waterfall, but the trails were pretty empty. They are a little over grown too. Overall experience was great though.

Nice trail, but not cleary marked in areas.

Took my 5 yr old daughter wife and 2 dogs to do the outer loop. It was a very easy leisure stroll. I would recommend this loop for anyone in Evansville that just wants to get out of town for a bit.

the waterfall is surprisingly beautiful. it's right by the parking lot though. the trails are poorly labeled and don't actually lead anywhere.

I find reviews here confusing. The Clear Creek Trail (paved) and the Rail Trail (unpaved) are not the same thing, though they intersect. And neither is anywhere near Bryan Park!

Definitely for biking, not for hiking. (sorry)

I hiked most of this trail this past weekend with some scouts who were prepping for Philmont. The trail was challenging and pushed all of us

We started at Old Forest Road, traveled clockwise, and finished by exiting the gravel road that runs from the Old Iron Bridge (OIB) to the entrance of the horse camp. The trail was nice and well marked, even through the small reroute on the southern end. The trail was slick in many places due to moisture. Water was non-existent existent. The portion on the trail in the reroute that is shared with horses, was destroyed and muddy as heck but, it was pretty short. While the hike was nice, there weren't many views because of the foliage.

One note as you are planning your water caches. The park map shows that water is available near the trail, at the end of the horse camp. This is not accessible for hikers becuase of the steep hillside between the trail and marked water. Even the walk from the trail, up the OIB access road, through the horse camp, isnt reasonable. This source was marked for the horse camp.

We dropped water where the trail crossed Cold Friday Road and again at the Pioneer Picnic Shelter. A third drop near the OIB would be nice if you didn't want to try filtering from the river but, I'm not sure how that would done.

Have fun and be safe.

SAFETY WARNING: this trail is located 5 miles from birdseye trail in birdseye. This trail has no mile markers and doesnt lisy the distance at the start either. it is 3 times the distance 11.8 miles. Most importantly this trail is not listed in google maps, whereas birdseye trail in birdseye that is 12 miles long and unmarked IS. I dont know what ridiculous oversight allowed this to happen but any experienced hiker knows this is extremely dangerous to a non experienced hiker. the trail being rated as "easy" , this should certainly be noted. This is a disgrace. I almost died as the sun was going down and there are bobcats in the area and i had no extra water or food beyond the 2 bottles i brought and an apple. Found out i can call 911 on satellite.

Benches have now been added. More to come. Look for an expansion through town.

Great trails! Pretty narrow in most spots though, and can be difficult to navigate / there’s not a lot of markers. I took my small dog with me and he had no issues with the trail. Will definitely go back.

Bonneyville Mill has bike trails as well as the main 1.0 mile trail that is shown on this App. The highlights of the location include a 3 story lookout and two small waterfalls. The area has always felt safe to me and the area is really quite lovely. I edged up hiking about 2.8 miles and only ran into one other person who was jogging the trails while I was there. There are several bathroom facilities on the park grounds and more than ample parking. This is a very pretty place to enjoy the outdoors.

So it’s actually a pretty descent hike. For the most part it’s well maintained but can get confusing due to lack of signs. Since I’ve never been there I appreciated the App to help me find the way. Anyway... so the hike consists of most of trail 1, trail 2, & part of trail 4 which is actually a loop trail but on here looked like an in & out that reconnects to 2. The trees were still pretty thin but the views of the lake are awesome. As an Arizona girl (now... I grew up in SB) it was nice to have a line of great pines to walk along.

Trail was fun. Lots of walking bridges and steep hills. Mainly made for mountain biking however was a fun hike as well. Stuck to the expert trails for the most interesting sights.
