Visiting Clifty Falls State Park, Indiana

Last weekend we took a quick day trip over to visit Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Indiana. We had heard that this state park has 4 waterfalls and some pretty staircase trails. We were off to discover them for ourselves.


Visiting Clifty Falls State Park, Indiana

Clifty falls state park offers everything you expect in a state park. There are beautiful scenic views, picnic areas, hiking trails, a restaurant, Inn and nature center as well as open play fields ready for the family to enjoy time together.


If yo enter from the north gate you can park and take a short wheelchair accessible walk over to see the first of four waterfalls.

There is a nice clean restroom area before you walk out to the falls.


You can drive to little parking areas throughout the falls and take short walks over to see each of the falls. Most of the trails have wooden steps along the way to take you to the different scenic overlooks. There doesn’t seem to be an easy way to get to the base of the falls that we could find.
