 Hiking Trail 4 (Rally Campground)

Trail 4 trailhead sign at Rally Campground, Brown County State Park.

Trail 4 starts out across from the Rally Campground parking lot and travels three quarters of a mile down the knobstone escarpment, dropping some 250 feet to Ogle Lake.

Once at Ogle Lake, hikers have a few choices to extend their routes as Trail 7 connects with Trail 11, and Trail 8 begins just across the parking lot at the Ogle Lake dam.

Trail 4 cuts through a lush forest with dense ground cover at Brown County State Park, Indiana.

While Trail 4 itself is a no-frills affair, it’s a perfect launching pad for a great day of hiking. Finish up at Trail 5, Ogle Hollow Nature Preserve, and loop back to the Rally Campground parking lot.
