You could hike for an entire summer on trails throughout the rest of Indiana and not experience as much as you will in just three hours on this hike. This loop combines segments of six trails and passes through many of the park’s most popular landmarks and geological features, from Shawnee Canyon toward the beginning to Devil’s Punch Bowl in the end. At 4.6 miles, the distance might sound challenging. But you’ll have plenty of time to rest your legs and catch your breath as you stop to appreciate the endless natural beauty.
