One of the more hidden areas of Caesar Creek State Park is Horseshoe Falls. For some reason, this amazing natural feature is off the radar for most folks, and once discovered you are already making your return trip plans. My first visit was on a rainy Father's Day. Steady rain, hiking with my family, we reached the overlook of the falls to see a raging rapid from all of the recent storms. From that point we headed back the way that we came, knowing at that point we would be coming back.
Parking for this area can be found at a few different locations, but my favorite starting point is from the Flat Fork Ridge parking area, which is easily enough located near the lake's dam off of Clarksville Rd. From the parking lot, head down a few steps and follow the blazes to the falls in just under 2 miles or so. Not a difficult hike whatsoever, and perfect for little ones. One highlight for the kids is the swinging bridge that crosses the stream that feeds the waterfall. Big hit in my household!
After crossing the bridge, you are essentially at your destination. If the water is low, explore the area around the falls, and revel in the fact that you are probably the only people there. That is worth the 45 minute drive in my book. And, the falls are a great place to have a seat and eat a packed lunch.
