Tips for birding Indianfield Bluffs Park
Indianfield Bluffs Park is fairly small, with a 4-car parking area. It includes a surprisingly mature forest along the river, and a double loop trail that weaves along the bluff west to the confluence of Indianfield Run and the Kokosing River. It is a good refuge for forest birds in a fairly agricultural area. The gravel bars at the confluence also attract shorebirds during migration.

About Indianfield Bluffs Park
Indian Bluffs Park has a parking lot, with picnic bench and grill. The park was named Indianfield Bluffs because the site contains the confluence of Indianfield Run with the Kokosing State Scenic River. A high bluff on the property renders awesome views of the Kokosing River, particularly during the late fall through early spring when the deciduous woods are leafless. The 25.5-acre site contains sandstone bluffs, floodplains, wetlands and an island. Reforestation efforts on the site have been completed in former cropland areas, with thousands of trees planted by Park District staff and East Knox High School students.
A 1.5 mile, double loop trail of steep gradients and switchbacks is available for hiking. Towering sycamores, testament to days gone by, will greet the hiker on the westernmost loop.
