Trail 8 Loop to Hesitation Point is a 11.7 mile loop hike where you may see beautiful wild flowers located near Nashville, Indiana. There is a total of 637 feet of elevation. The distance, terrain, and elevation make this hike perfect for any intermediate and advanced level hikers. The hike has a few sections where there are steep climbing portions, but it is well worth it once you make it to the top. At the top of the hike there is a beautiful overlook (over the parking lot) with incredible views, definitely make sure to snap a few pictures if it is a clear day! The hike is out and back, so once you get to the top you turn right back around and head down. Make sure to be careful on the way down, as it is steep in a couple places and getting the right footing is important.

Nice Hike

Came here for a long day of hiking a biking! We did one of the two Trail 8 Loops and checked out Hesitation Point. Super nice park, but the Point wasn't too much to brag about.
