Patoka Lake Hiking Trails

Hiking at Patoka Lake State Park is a great way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors! The Patoka Lake hiking trails are a great way to explore nature.  Some of these trails are quite easy while others can be more challenging.

About Patoka Lake Hiking Trails

The hiking trails are located on a peninsula that is just north of the Patoka Lake Nature Center. You will find parking at the nature center and from there you will find a bunch of different trails. Basically you can pick your adventure because the trails intersect a lot. One of the highlights is Totem rock, which is a large rock shelter that is worth checking out.
