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

I loved that the trail was an actual trail and no fire road to travel. Beatiful trail and I didn't think it was especially difficult or hard. Definitely not as hard as Low Gap. The markers along the trail were nice but it was hard to locate the "you are here" arrow to track your progress. We started at the north trail head and just stayed right on the outter loop. Ultimately we had to use GPS to determine our location as the sun was setting and we had already passed mile 6 on the fit bit. This entire loop is actually a little over 8 miles!! Still a good trail and I would do it again.

Good trail for a casual weekday walk. No bikes to worry about. Trails clearly marked.

Parking: Park in the Grubb Parking lot. It's not really a parking lot. It's a giant clearing with gravel on the ground. Everyone crambs their cars into it like a giant puzzel. I arrived at 8am on a Sunday morning. Almost every spot was taken. That's because people were back packing from Friday, Saturday. I was able to get a spot.

Trail. If you take the Grubb Trail to the Peninsula Trail it's about 5 miles in one direction. It took me about an hour and 50 minutes. The terrian on the Penninsula Trail is slightly down hill heading to Monroe Lake. That means it's up hill on the way back. You don't notice the slope of the terrain until you head back.

Camp sites: Absolutely beautiful view of the lake. Breathtaking sunsets.

Swimming: Bring water shoes if you plan on swimming. The beach is all sharp, slippery rocks. No flip flops or sandles. WATER SHOES!

Nice setting for a metropolitan area. Heavy bike use. Only negative is constant traffic noise from I-465.
