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.

My eight year old son and I did the Low Gap. It was a very enjoyable trail with some pretty cool features.

I enjoy Low Gap. However, I wish the end of trail didnt spend so much time on gravel. The trail is easy to follow with many peaceful spots along the way. The trail has a few hill climbs. The trail head is easy to find.

We completed this trail in just 5 hours. It's very interesting and well marked. Helps to have a map. Don't forget the bug juice!
