Hiking Trails

We encourage one to wander about the miles of trails that thread across the landscape.  You'll visit bluff edge overlooks, plunging waterfalls, springs and even a rock shelter where native Americans once camped.  The rock for the trail system at Batesville Mountain Campground was quarried, cut and stacked over an eight year period by just one man:  Sparky. 

Tip:  Ask for a trail map at the gate.
