Runner Notes

The trails are all gravel or dirt, with a few roots and rocks to watch out for, so this is a great place to pick up the pace.

Description

The Rim Trail is one of many trails within Depauw Nature Park. It starts with a tough, steep climb up to the rim of the quarry, then levels out for the remainder of the trail. This particular trail is great for trail running or hiking, but regardless of how you enjoy it, you'll want to take in the views as they are beautiful. Nearly the entire trail follows the rim of the old rock quarry, so you'll be treated to a expansive vantage point of the whole quarry from anywhere you are.
