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

Moderately easy trail, good for getting out and close to the city. Some areas can get muddy so don’t bring your new kicks.

Pretty decent trail with a good amount of elevation however the factories nearby emit lots of fumes/smells. I developed a sinus headache and hurried to complete the walk.

I agree I would not call this trail moderate. It should be easy. One hill with steps doesn’t qualify it as moderate for me. I like being “off road”

Nice hike but a lot of it was on asphalt which was a downer. I liked the woods portion.

So let me start by saying that the “flooding issue” is no joke. There we’re several sections I spent inching through sideways to avoid the lake sized puddles and inches of mud.

As far as beauty, this is not the trail for sights, BUT for beginner hikers wanting to build endurance, this is perfect. It’s a flat, gravel paved trail, so no ups & downs. You’re never far from a cross road (in case you needed help or a pick-up), lots of port-a-pots & even two train stations with bathrooms, also decent cell service (again, in case you needed to call anyone). So with these conveniences, I would recommend it for beginners.

One thing missing: benches. I was able to tackle it, but other hikers with different abilities could benefit from the occasional place to sit.

Really cool property and site of a county-wide X/C meet between various local high schools this weekend. You can find single track trails here for trail running or mountain biking and wider carriage trails set up for X/C running. There are open fields and spots where you can see the Wabash River. The amphitheater itself is cool too, you can do some "stadium runs" on the steps there if you're up for it. I'd go back here in a minute, a nice place if you're looking for a run off-campus and the opportunity to get closer to Mother Nature! Enjoy!!!

First time in Fort Harrison. First time using this app. Enjoyed both. Chipmunks and squirrels and deer, oh my!

One of my fave hikes in the state park. Not generally very busy and a nice place to go on a hike to escape the city life for a bit.

Totally loved these trails. My husband and I did these trails along with trail 2 which took us about 6 hrs to enjoy. Parts of these trail were a little rough. I didn't bring mine this hike, but a pair of trekking sticks or a staff would have been helpful. Areas of the trails got close to bluffs and would have just made me feel a little more secure on the trail.

My husband and I hiked Camp Creek Trail yesterday with our two dogs. We had a great time! we dont care for asphalt trails but aren't quiet ready for a "difficult" trail yet. This trail had some steeper inclines and spots that were pretty narrow with drop offs right on the other side. It deffinitly was great for giving that backcountry feel but still on a dirt path. We only past one other couple and 3 deer.

I loved this hike! Beautiful, interesting woods along a swamp with lots of wildflowers and hills A few steep, sandy dune climbs, but altogether not too bad. Wonderful stop at the Lake Michigan beach about half way through the hike.

Good time, Good trails, Extremely Easy with multiple trail routes to choose. We started here, went west, & walked to the beach.

I'm an avid hiker/explorer and this place is a blast! Make sure you have atleast a full day to enjoy this magical place!

This would be such a fun beginner trail running path, but a large portion is closed for several months and August had just way too many spiderwebs, biting bugs and loud cicadas for now. I’d suggest waiting for a less humid day to enjoy this beautiful trail.

This park is very well maintained and the trails are well marked! We couldn’t record our hike because my phone battery is not stellar, but we hiked 7.6 miles with a combination of 8, 1, 5, 4, & 7. It was a super hot day and we were pleased to find that the Nature Center on the south end of the park is air conditioned with a lovely bird viewing room. We saw all of the falls but I think Tunnel Falls was the best! I liked Little Clifty Falls as well. When the map says the trail is rugged, they’re not kidding. The ruggedness is a great challenge, but be prepared to climb up and down on rock and roots quite a bit. Also, people who are afraid of heights should maybe stay on trail 2, because there are many drop-offs next to the trails up on the ridge. Overall we had a challenging, but rewarding, day in the outdoors!

beautiful park, but the trails are not marked very well

Loved trail 5. Tunnel Falls was my favorite waterfalls of the day, Caution on the rocks leading up to the tunnel as they are slick. The tunnel is closed to foot traffic from fall to spring. Trail 5 goes around the tunnel also. South end of trail has a 153 step staircase that will give you a great quad workout. There is also a leg of the trail to take you to the creek.

very nice scenery, clean trails as well!

Love the creek trail all the way up to the falls!

Bring bug spray! What a cool hike. Several different ecosystems, a pretty tough sandy incline, lots of wildlife, and plenty of isolated beach. My first hike in Indiana and I can’t wait to go back!

This is a nice trail out to the beach through woods and the bog. Insect repellant is prob a must...I mean it is a bog after all. I didn't have a problem with bugs with repellant on. The first mile or so is shaded with packed sand, providing a stable walking surface, and also a raised boardwalk through the bog. As you make your way toward the beach, the hills get steeper and the sand gets increasingly loose, making it a challenging hike. The views are well worth the dune hike, and I'd prefer to hike here to this beach over going to the crowded beach anyday. Great trail.

This is one of my favorite trails in the area! If you go in the summer time, you can eat some of the blackberries!

Loved it! Very kid friendly!

Went hiking here and was first disappointing because there was hardly any water at the falls. We left to get something to eat and it had rained really hard. Went back later to trail 5 at tunnel falls and was just looking at it with a little bit of water flowing. Then out of nowhere I heard a loud noise and water from the creek started roaring down the falls. It was amazing and breathtaking. The falls became powerful in a matter of seconds. It was one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen! You have to see the falls after a good storm to really appreciate it.

Perfect trail end with an excellent view of Lake Michigan. Bring your lunch, there is a nice shaded spot!

Short trek to reach the beach. Nice mix of woods and the sandy dunes.

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

Great trails. Well maintained. The bridges, wooden stairs, and decking were in good repair. Portions of the trail were muddy even on a dry day so be prepared. The scenery is beautiful.

One issue I had with the park was that trail signs are inconsistent. They will provide info for hikers going in one direction but not the reverse.

Now as for Alltrails map, there is a problem with the route. It seems recent improvements and restrictions make the loop as drawn impossible. On the east side of the loop the trail route shows the trail crossing a creek (it's about 1/3 of the way down the east side). The park has put up fencing and signs to prohibit hikers from crossing because it is right above a really precipitous waterfall. The fencing isn't too prohibitive and the trail is still visible with stepping stone across the water. If you obey the signs, you'd have to follow the road, which would add significantly to the distance.

The only thing that makes this hike moderate is the elevation change as the trails are well maintained. I jogged when I could and with some side trails and taking pics, I did this 5 mile loop in 6.3 miles and 1.75 hours.

Ticks are out and about. Be careful. Ended up with one yesterday.

Nice trail and close to Chicago.
