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!!!

Nice place for a walk, trail run, or mountain bike ( I think it's okay to bike in here ). I was mainly interested in seeing the Tippecanoe River as it's my understanding that the Native American village that was the source of the warriors that attacked Harrison's troops lived in this area. Doesn't seem entirely likely they would have lived on this lowland prairie since it's wet-ish and prone to flooding. There are certainly many options on either side of the Tippecanoe. The trail was flooded this day and it was too risky trying to pass via the fallen trees and timbers so I bushwacked back through the tall grass and eventually found a gooshy crossing to the trail. A cool part of the State Park!

Nice trail that has about a 50/50 split of time in shade compared to the sun. When the water is high/recent rain the eastern portion of the trail could be submerged and possible un-passable. During our hike on this trail on 2 occasions we had to use downed trees to cross water with one of the 2 causing me to go shin deep with one of my steps in water.

Nice trail but the backend was flooded.
