A great hike at Fort Benjamin that makes you forget you're still in the city.

I like hiking at Ft. Ben because it has paved and unpaved trails- which means you can go for a walk in pretty much any weather. The hills are fairly moderate- not too crazy but steep enough to keep things interesting. Good for biking, hiking, fishing, and picnicking!

Took my first hike in years this past weekend. We chose this trail because it's close to home. Great atmosphere! Nice clear paths. I took time to climb a few of the steep hills along the way. Trail is also parallel to the water. Great views. We went early morning so not much traffic on the trails. Can't wait to go again

We hiked the Fall Creek Trail past Duke pond and back on Camp Creek Trail. There was a moderate crowd, and a sunny day. The trail is well marked and can support a moderate level of traffic. Nice views of fall creek from some wooden observation platforms. This is a good hiking trail and better for hiking than the Lawrence Creek trail. I think it is the best hiking trail in Fort Harrison State Park.

Great trail along the creek with a nice observation platform along the way. It's pretty muddy out right now and this one hooks up to Harrison Trace if you want to switch to a paved path.

Nice trail in the fall with easy to moderate elevation and terrain gains. Beware after heavy rains because the mud on the trails gets very slick with not enough stability to hike up safely. Wide variety of walkers and dog walkers on this trail. No bikers which is a change from the other trails in the park

I hiked through Ft. Harrison where there were no trails when I was a kid so hiking on this trail was a treat. I agree it is a good trail for a novice hiker but the scenary, the friendly people you pass and the opportunities to stop and relax or have a small picnic is enjoyable for everyone. The terrain throughout the whole hike changes which makes the trail interesting. There are a lot of people with dogs but 99% of them follow the leash law so there is no issue sharing the trail.
