Description

Very short trail that begins at the Bonwell Hill boat ramp and traverses quiet woods to the Brookville Lake Dam. There is one bridge along the trail that crosses a small stream. In the evening hours, deer and opossums are very plentiful in this area. This trail gets very muddy after a rain.

You can continue across Brookville Lake Dam to access Wolf Creek Trail. There are two ways to cross the dam. There is a paved walkway on top with great views of the lake as well as Brookville in the Whitewater Valley, and features signposts giving information on the dam. The other option is a gravel path near the water where seagulls, herons, and sometimes snakes and fish can be seen.

Cross the spillway to begin Wolf Creek Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Opossums, birds, herons, rodents, lots of deer. Fish, seagulls, and snakes can be found by the dam.
