Walkthrough the tops of old-growth trees and along sloping ravines. The paved trail incorporates over 5 miles of the 1860’s Big Four Rail corridor.
Enjoy a quiet moment on the bridge over the Creek. Launch a canoe or kayak at the Rock River Landing Trail Head. Bring a camera, binoculars for birdwatching, or a picnic lunch.
“The loveliest part of the trail,” according to one delighted visitor, is between Sugar Creek Bridge and the trail end. This section is reminiscent of nearby Shades and Turkey Run State Parks, without the entrance fees.
Parking areas, benches, a picnic shelter, and restrooms are located near the four trailhead areas. Dogs (on leashes) are popular visitors to the trail.
