Lots of varying elevation in a trail for this area. High canopy, above a well maintained trail.

Hiked loop around and back to make it 2 miles. Signage is confusing. Definitely no pets or dogs allowed despite what this app says. Saw a small herd of 8 deer.

This loop includes the Backcountry Trail, which is 1.5 miles and pretty vigorous, plus a couple of other trails. The entire loop is nearly 3 miles and very hilly but quite enjoyable.

Did this at Christmas time while visiting the in-laws. Very runnable trail. Did the “back country trail” in addition to the wilderness loop and it came out to a little under 4 miles with about 560 ft. elevation gain. Saw some great wildlife too with some deer, woodpeckers, and cardinals. Will definitely be doing this trail every time I’m in the area.

One of my favorite trails in John James Audubon State Park. Not very hilly and well-maintained. Several nice foot bridges. Watch for ticks in the summer.

Very short, easy for walking, and well-maintained. Part of a larger trail system in John James Audubon State Park.

Longer and a little harder due to elevation but nothing to extreme, the trail drops down to the valley floor and walks part way along the creek. Woods offer large trees and huge grape vines. Nice trek especially in the early spring, when the leaves are just starting to form. Allows you to still see the terrain but still see green. Birds are a big part of this park and have many activities surrounding them. Chirping through out this trek makes it especially nice.

Nothing to exciting, kid friendly, educational on how land developed. Nice trek. They recently added metal plaques with addition info on plants, trees, animals and birds of the area, great for children’s education and introducing them to the outdoors.

They say moderate but mostly easy, some incline. kid friendly, abundant trees and history on woods.

probably my favorite of thier trails, traverse ground, bridges, wooden walkways, lake view and wild life make this an interesting trek with a variety of views. Nothing to extreme but could be considered challenging for some.

Really enjoyed our hike to see fall color. Challenging enough to get the blood pumping.

Great fall color! This one was almost too hilly for the younger kids hiking with me.

I run this trail often, love it!

Nice day hike for the family inside of Audubon State Park. Peaceful and easily accessed. Connects with multiple loops if you want to carry on.

ONCE AGAIN A SHORT .1 MILE, IN FACT A STOLL. BUT BEATIFUL AREA, SOME EDUCATION ON LAND EROSION EXIST ALONG THE PATH, WHICH WAS ENTERESTING. THIS IS JUST A SMALL PART OF INTERCONNECTING TRAILS THROUGH BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE. EASY.

Nice, fairly easy hike. We got to the bridge and started to follow the rest of the trail but it was overgrown with weeds so the kids wouldn't finish. We turned around and crossed the bridge and finished that trail. The front of the KY Coffee Tree hike is all downhill.

This was the nicest trail that we hiked while out at the State Park. There are plenty of old grapevines growing up providing great canopy which was nice. It's also a change of scenery from your typical woodsy escapade. The walk down to the lake area was not strenuous at all and the kids liked being able to sneak down to the water.
