Vehicles using the Angel Mounds parking lot must be out by 5 p.m.

Runner Notes

Most of the area is subject to flooding by the nearby Ohio River. Often low lying areas remain wet and muddy.

Description

There is a wooded section outside the fenced in archeological site. This area is free and open to public. Angel Mounds State Historic Site offers a nice system of single and doubletrack trails, and there are several parking lots available.

This run starts from the southern parking lot and heads out on the River Loop. Stay to the right at the trail junctions to run along the Outer Loop until you come to a junction with the Levee Trail. Take a left here and after a short ways, you'll see a short connector that puts you back on the Outer Loop. Run this trail south until you once again are on the River Loop and on your way back to the start.

Overall, the trail is mostly flat and easy with only a few small ups and downs along the way.

Fun run. Mostly dry. Thank you to those that do the maintenance. Could use some trimming.
