Great short day hike! Would love to return to backpack. Easy but satisfying. Crazy blue water, you forget you’re in Indiana for a brief moment.

I live near this trail and hike it about once a month. Hiked it yesterday at 3pm and startled a couple whitetail does. The trail is very well put together and is an excellent resource for the community. The volunteers who maintain the trail do an excellent job. I especially like the historic features along the trail: cut stone bridge piers; a section of rail ties; and a romantic old road bed. This trail is well loved and frequently has a wide variety of users from families with small kids to elderly dog walkers. Definitely make time to hike this trail and take in its history.

Despite the name, only one lake. Haha. Easy trail. Underwhelming.

Hard trail but my 11 year old son is always in front of me while I catch my breath. Once in the creek views are amazing. Walking sticks and back for a day hike with plenty of water.

Trails are great with awesome views. Highly recommended.

First trip of the year, around 10 degrees! I carried in enough water so I wouldn't need a filter, but there were many sources. No mud issues because it was so cold, but I can tell it will be very muddy once a thaw comes. All major turns were well marked, and most had benches. Maybe it was white blazes in the 2-3 inches of snow, but I for sure found it difficult to spot the next blaze more often than not. Drive time was right at 4 hours from Chicago, Ill have to split between here and Huron-Manistee NF as my main overnighter destinations.

Very soggy a few days after a heavy snow, but beautiful nonetheless!

Walked it in 5 inches of snow and it was spectacular!

I walked around the lake and added the fire tower section and registered just over 2 miles. If you do the fire tower there is one section that is uphill. Tower was open when I went and even though the day wasn't clear the view was worth the climb to the top.

Well maintained and friendly park staff.

Highly recommend when it’s covered in snow, you’ll forget you’re in the middle of Indy!

The trail closest to the mill is a swamp. However if you cross the cr you’ll find bike and hiking trails! Beautiful place to bring your furry friends too!

We walk half of this trail almost every day. Our house to halfway point is about 3.5 miles. We LOVE it for wearing out our golden retriever! See lots of birds, no traffic. Great easy walk!

they were working on a bridge but other than that a great trail

Great trail! Middle section is narrow and has some steep terrain with some tree roots. Great loop for a trail runs.

Took my daughter an my dog they both loved it a nice beginner's trail.

Beautiful countryside makes for an enjoyable hike. The eastern side of the loop is poorly marked and maintained, which make for more adventurous hiking. Numerous stream crossings on the eastern loop add to the fun!

Love this place as it's a nice escape to hike. Lots of wildflowers and some hills following the creek.

Nice little loop trail. Fairly easy hike. Perfect distance for a quick hike in the woods.

Hiked this 01/07/19, from Ogle Lake and Trail 4. There is indeed still a tree down blocking the trail between the steps on Trail 5 and the parking lot in the campgrounds. Someone has made a workaround path around it, but it is slippery when muddy and a little steep. We managed it, but it was a little tricky.

great trail, better take a snack it's an all day trail.

nice wide trails

great for the whole family. the stairs make for an easy climb up the big hills.

A good challenge but the views are worth it! bring trekking poles or a walking stick!
