Brother and I hiked in Friday -Sunday to mess with our bushcraft. Always an awesome area to hike. Were a lot of folks out enjoying. Not cold enough.

I've walked this trail twice. The first with a group of Volksmarch walkers for exercise. The trails are poorly marked once you start having options to take. We didn't have a trail map and probably walked parts of all three trail systems in there. Me and a friend had a tracking app on and was how we finally got back out but we did over 5 miles and had people lost in several areas.
Yesterday I went out with someone more experienced in hiking and introduced my dog to his first hike. He is obedience trained so I let him off lead with the other dog along for the hike. An hour and a half into the pleasant hike, my dog picked up on deer starting to move and took off on their trail. After 2 hours of searching the woods, he finally showed up where we had parked. Not really making it into my favorite place list.

My favorite trail experience as a novice. Went on a warm summer day and rarely crossed anyone's path. Did manage to get several Yellowjacket stings at the branch off where the Lake trail separates from Scarce 'o Fat, but otherwise a great experience.

Very enjoyable trail in the heart of southern Indiana. There is a wide variety of terrain and a couple of picturesque creeks and vistas. This trail is gorgeous in the spring and fall.

It was fine, but the stagnant water near the old mill resulted in lots of insects. I would not do this trail in the dead of summer again.

The trail was in really good shape for this time of year and the wildlife adds more fun to the trip. There's some ups an downs, but you are rewarded with some nice views and even some cliff faces to explore near the end of the loop. We took the connector trail and my gps showed just under 7 miles back at the parking lot. Lots of fun!

We hiked trail #3 and #10 (they merge to form a loop) with our 5 and 8 year old boys and had a great time. It is hard to believe you are in Indiana when you explore Turkey Run State Park.

This is a great short hike for families. It's good in all seasons but the views of the river during the winter are awesome.
