Trails

A long-stemmed lollipop trail leads from the parking area into the woods. The trees, including buckeye, beech, maple, and cherry, are of recent vintage, but there are plenty of spring wildflowers – snow trillium early on, soon followed by May apple, jack-in-the-pulpit, prairie trillium, and fringed phacelia.


Rock Face

The trail turns right and descends to Rock Creek, a small but scenic tributary of the Wabash. You’ll follow the creek through more mature woods, past areas when the water has carved low rock overhangs along its course, before heading back up toward the parking area.


Directions

Warren County. From the intersection of IN 28 and IN 263 just north of West Lebanon, drive 1.5 miles south on IN 263 to County Road 400 South, then left (east) 1.1 miles to the parking area on the left.
