Fall Creek in central Indiana
Fall Creek :

Below Geist Reservoir

71st Street Bridge (in Marion County)

Parking: There is a small parking area with room for 1 to 2 vehicles near a cell phone tower at the corner of 71st Street and Fall Creek Road, at the northwest corner of the bridge over Fall Creek. After pulling in off the road be sure to park to the right, away from the restricted cell phone tower.

Path to River: There is a 50 yard carry along a path that begins at the parking area. The path through trees and bushes is often somewhat overgrown and requires some ducking to avoid branches. At the start the dirt path is generally level, though a little rough, with steeper rip rap at the bottom.

River Access: The river bank is rocky and at a slight angle, but there is plenty of room to load several boats at a time, and it is a decent place to linger while getting ready.

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go, so always be ready for them. Riffles will appear and disappear based on water flow levels. Do not attempt boating on this or any river during high water. Please be safe, respectful and responsible on the river.
