What are some of the best easy hikes in Indiana?
With literally hundreds, if not more, trails to choose from, it’s hard to decide where to go hiking first. We recommend amazing hikes like Cataract Falls via Ed Dailey Nature Trail, which can be found at Cataract Falls State Recreation Area. That trail is just under two miles long, at 1.7 miles, and it’s amazingly beautiful – especially for how easy it is! Another favorite is Little Clifty Falls, at Clifty Falls State Park. It’s 1.6 miles long and awe-inspiring – well worth the trip! Finally, try the Bluffs of Beaver Bend trail, which is within Bluffs of Beaver Bend. That one is a little longer, at 2.7 miles long, but also worth the (minimal) effort.
