I enjoyed most of this hike so much. I think there are some better vistas on the Three Lakes Trail, but some of the valleys and overlooks and the rock shelter on this one are gorgeous. I got a little nervous as I was walking the gravel road along private property that I had made a mistake and missed the trail, but at the end of the road it was clear the trail resumed. I would recommend it for great exercise, but some parts are a bit straight and tedious.

I hike this trail multiple times a year, have even done it at night. Lots of scenery and some good climbs for cardio. Usually take about 4 hours so I can enjoy it. I recommend this trail for anyone in good condition. Morgan Monroe marks their trails very well so there should be no problems finding your way.

Really enjoyed seeing the wildlife! Unfortunately, we foolishly didn't bring bug spray today =[ other than the insects bothering us, we had a really enjoyable hike, with variations in altitude, and changing terrain underfoot. I'll definitely be coming back to do this trail again! The workout on your legs is just excellent =]

Great day hike tucked away in Monroe county. It took me and my crew about 4 hours to complete and we were beat tired after finishing. We ended up hiking the Mason Ridge trail instead of staying on the gravel trail (lame). This was a more scenic route that ended up being just shy of 11 miles for the day. A lot of fun on this rugged trail!

Great hike that is only 40 minutes from Indy. I hike this trail several times a year for a good cardio workout. Hiking at a good pace and not taking any breaks, its about a 3 hour hike. I also like it because if I'm not feeling it that day, I can cut out the river bottom section which shaves off about 2 miles.

This is a close to home hike for the family. Nice elevation change after the rock shelter giving the legs a good work out. The service roads leave a lot to be desired but the back country area has some cool spots to hang a hammock and chill.

Not marked that well, but was a nice walk through the woods.
