suspension bridge to hiking trailsDeep canyons nestled in the shadows of sandstone cliffs and peaceful hemlock groves harbor some of the most ruggedly beautiful hiking trails in the state. Trails are open from dawn to dusk.

To get to many hiking trails you need to cross the suspension bridge over Sugar Creek. Be warned - it is 70 steps down to the suspension bridge. Upon crossing the bridge you will be in the Rocky Hollow-Falls Canyon Nature Preserve, containing deep sandstone canyons and one of the last remnants of the magnificent forest that originally covered most of Indiana. Please protect and enjoy this priceless heritage.

With miles of easy to very rugged trails, hiking is one of the most popular activities at Turkey Run. (Sorry, bicycles must remain on paved public roads.)

Warning: Many trails, except Trail 11, have portions that use ravine streambeds as trail surface, and sections of those trails can become slick and the trail tread uneven. Parts of these trails may be impassible during high water and should be considered closed during such times. Use alternate trails during high water.
