Clifty Falls State Park

Clifty Falls State Park

Clifty Falls State Park is about a 90 minute drive from Louisville. Clifty Falls offers some amazing hiking, waterfalls and beautiful views. Last Saturday looked a little like rain, but we decided to trek it up to Clifty Falls outside of Madison anyhow.

Along the way we stopped in this sweet Roadside Farm Market;

We arrived to Clifty Falls State Park in the mid-afternoon and tackled several trails.

Trail 1 leads to the lookout tower with some fantastic views.

You will definitely want to take the welcome brochure with the state park map with you if you plan to get in the thick of the trails. $5 Admission for IN state cars and $7 for out of state cars is not a bad deal considering the adventure ahead…

Trail 2 looks like it runs right alongside and through the creek/river….

I’d suggest you bring shoes that can get wet. And a basket of peaches to eat on the less rugged portion of the trail.

and it does.

The map and brochure breaks down the trails from moderate to rugged to very rugged. And very rugged indeed.

We had a great 2.5 hour hike through the river, climbing the rocks and ending with a beautiful view of the Clifty Falls.
