General info

The 25.5-acre 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, particularly during the late fall through early spring when the deciduous woods are leafless.  The park features sandstone bluffs, floodplains, wetlands, and an island.  Restoration 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.

The island within Indianfield Bluffs Park is named “Cedar Waxwing Island,” since these beautiful birds inhabit the island and the riverine environs.
