I have walked here many times it is only 5 minutes away from my house. Most of the time the trails are lightly used...stocked pond draws a crowd and great place to picnic.
ATTN. It is a Lake county Indiana park and there is a fee to enter.

I enjoy walking here...yes some of the signs seem to throw you off but you can find your way. Can stay wet at times but all and all a good walk. By the way I like loud trains :)

I found this place quite by accident...stopped and took a walk...Wow! If you come out on the east side of the loop the view of the lake is beautiful. A little hard up and down at the lake but all and all a very good hike.

This was a great trail for my first solo backpacking trip. Camp site #1 was clean but is right on the trail. Campsite #2 looked like a frat party happened the night before. Beer bottles and trash everywhere unfortunately. I have a feeling it was from people mooring boats and hiking up the ravine. No water along the route so be prepared. I will definitely be hiking this again. Don't forget your $10 cash for the pay tube!

We walked this yesterday. Started at Battleground, ate our picnic lunch on the Pedestrian Bridge, then went on Fort Ouiatenan. A beautiful hike. Magical scenery that felt otherworldly. A special Indiana place.

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 =]
