  • Welcome Center Parking Lot
  • Want to hike on JMF trails but new to hiking or seeking more of a scenic hike??? Don't worry we've got you covered! This hike will be at relaxed comfortable walking pace and although it's listed as "strenuous" on the map there is only one steep hill that we can take plenty of time hiking up!

    Trail: Welcome Center to Yost connector to Blue/Mitchell Hill Lake Loop (counter clockwise) back to Yost connector and then to welcome center.

    Pace: Comfortable to allow conversation and sight seeing.

    What to bring: Water.

    Pets: Dogs will love the lake portion assuming they love water.

    So come out and try it out for a little bit of exercise or just come to socialize while checking out something different.

    Directions to Welcome Center: 1. From I-65 take I-265 West (Gene Snyder Freeway). 2. Take the New Cut Road exit and turn left (south). 3. Travel approximately 1.2 miles. At the yellow flashing light, turn right onto Mitchelll Hill Road. 4. Travel 1.5 miles. Turn left into the Welcome Center parking lot (11311 Mitchell Hill Road). The Welcome Center is a white, two-story building with a red roof.

      I hope the weather will never get unbearable but it might. I had some interest in kayaking but have never tried it. Since I don't have any hikes that day I will stop by. Now where is Long Run Park Lake? Thanks, Kevin

      Its in Eastern Jefferson Co. Just a few miles down Shelbyville rd. from the new Parklands / Floyds fork entrance. Turn left at the light onto Flat Rock rd. and long run is on the right.­

    Good Morning to you. Due to the weather we are forced to cancel this event. It is not a Stroll in the woods but more likely a mud slide in the woods. We regret this inconvience and look forward to next week along with much better weather.

    Due to the rain and mud, I believe I'm going to back out of hiking today, Chris. I do look forward to the next time. . .Happy Sloshing

    We will walk this trail 2 hours prior to the hiking event to make sure all is well depending on the amount of rain we might get. If Sunday turns out to be an all day rain situation we will cancel this hike. Thank you for your understanding.

    I'll probably be bringing a dog and my mom.

      That would be fine. Just make it a +1 to your RSVP. I believe your mom and you would like this trail.
