THING TO DO
Hiking & Exploring Hopewell Mound Group
Today, the site has a 2.5 mile interpretive trail and a portion of the Rails-To-Trails bike path. Bikes are only permitted on the bike path, not on the interpretive trail. A pavillion with a number of picnic tables is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is located adjacent to the parking lot and about 100 feet away from the restroom building.
For additional information, directions to Hopewell Mound Group and for a downloadable site map with trail locations, please visit the park's Hopewell Mound Group page.
Duration is dependent upon each person's physical stamina and level of interest.
Pets are always welcome, but must be leashed and in control at all times. Owners are responsible to pick up pet's poop and to dispose of properly.
