1. Memorial Loop (2.5 miles) Moderate — Easily accessed from many different locations, this trail travels along the eastern shore of Whitewater Lake through a variety of forest types.
2. Cattail Alley Trail (1 mile) Moderate — Accesses the family campground to the beach area of Whitewater Lake. The northwest end of the trail is marked by acres of cattails, providing great habitat for many species of waterfowl and other birds.
3. Red Springs Loop (1.2 miles) Moderate — This loop trail can be accessed from the spillway parking lot or the Nature Preserve parking lot. The majority of the trail meanders through the Hornbean Nature Preserve and past large seep springs that gush from the hillsides, leaving its minerals and iron deposits to cast a rusty color over the surface water. This is a wonderful trail for spring wildflowers.

It traverses through hills and valleys of beautiful hardwoods along the western shore of Whitewater Lake. The half-mile short loop is at the beginning—watch for wooden signs. The long trail turns around at the wooden steps and observation deck.
5. Veterans Vista Loop (2 miles) Moderate — This trail offers a spectacular view of Brookville Lake, winding through fields and forests in the Silver Creek and family-cabin areas.
