Really enjoyed this trail, it's not too difficult and there are several peeks at the river along the way.

Beautiful intermediate trail. Lots to see and do in this county run park. Take a map or gps, blue and green trails overlap quite a bit. We saw cardinals, woodpeckers, robins, several toads, a bald headed vulture, and a chipmunk. We took a 9 and 12 yr old, they didn't complain once about the terrain. The trail does take you pretty close to some campsites.

Nice trail. A short loop is available. Some interesting rock formations along one bank of the river. However, can't get close enough for a better look see.

I think this trail was a great trail. Good job!

welcoming quiet hike on winding undulating path

The trail was surprisingly good considering I knew this didn't really have major eye catching scenery. It was peaceful and I set my hammock up for me and the dog and felt it was quite a beautiful stroll through the forest.

The trail was easy to find and easy to walk, but thin enough sometimes that your feet barely fit due to overgrowth, which was no problem. No stairs. No cliffs.

My dog ran through the Meadows part of the trail and really enjoyed that area.

Really great place! The trails are rudimentary in certain spots and can be difficult to navigate. But for rock climbing its fantastic. If you live in central Indiana its seemingly one of the only outdoor locations to get your hands on some real rock. The walls are great and there are some really advanced climbs that will surely test you abilities. Check it out if you are getting tired of driving vast distances to a gym.

Great trail. Love how it rolls with the river.

My favorite local trail! I take my dog there at least once a week.
