  • This place is beautiful! The hiking is moderately rugged and a good pair of hiking boots is suggested, but we had a blast. There are some wet slippery areas, thus the good boots. The area of Rock Holl...  more »
  • This is a fun place to hike. We had a picnic and then hiked for about 4 hours, which was about right. The "very rugged" trail #3 was interesting and tricky at points (some boulders and slippery stream...  more »

  • No better place to take a hike. I've camped here several times with the Boy Scouts and love these trails. Finally took the wife here during the Covered Bridge Festival. A nice stop, the bridge is easily accessable from outside the Park as well. Do yourself a favor and take the ride west of Indy and enjoy some of the best hiking around.
  • My first time visiting the park yesterday and I can't wait to go back! The trails are stunningly beautiful. The trails are well maintained and it wasn't crowded at all (we were there on a Tuesday afternoon). We had just gotten to the punch bowl when a storm came right down on us so we weren't able to explore much on that trail so we took trail 9 to boulder canyon. I'd like to finish trail 4, check out the coal mine and ladders. Beautiful terrain!
  • Our school went here for a field trip. I think all of the students agree that this was their best field trip yet! The scenery is amazing and not too far from where we live. My only regret is that I didn't have a better camera!
  • The best park in the state. Maybe even one of the best in the country. It's very clean and well kept. Lots of hiking and things to do. Rocky Hollow (trail 3) is awesome.
  • This is my family's favorite Park in Indiana. If you've got little kids Kama we recommend Trails 6 + 11 totaling only about a mile or two between them. With only a short walk, you can get him to the great canyon and see a historical area. One could probably spend all day here and not hide it all, as there is some very rugged terrain and quite a bit of trails. Several Canyon areas offer awesome destinations, and they are all worth the hikes. It's only about an hour and 20 minutes outside of Indianapolis , and well worth the drive.
