More Information

I happened to visit late in the day, and the sun was crawling behind the horizon.  I enjoyed the diverse change in elevation, the easily walk-able path, and the beautiful scenery that the trail wound through.  I could see it at the beginning of an alternate transportation pathway through Corydon, allowing people to navigate to different locations in the city without needed to get in their cars.  Unfortunately when I visited, there were few people using the trail.  Perhaps they were just as aware as I was that trails were better used during the daytime.
