71st St Bridge to Fall Creek Corridor Park
at Fall Creek Rd

Distance: 3.56 miles

"Suicide Falls" on Fall CreekRiver Features: In the first half of this trip the river continues through Fort Harrison State Park. In this section wildlife abounds, and personal trips have awarded sights such as a doe and her fawn taking a soak in a large deep pool in the river. They, of course, scrambled out of the river and into the woods upon sight of canoers rounding the bend. The park property ends just before the 63rd Street bridge, where the put-in or take-out is just before to under the bridge on the right. Shortly after the 63rd Street bridge you will pass under the bridges for Shadeland Avenue and I-465. Shortly thereafter you will find the take-outs for Fall Creek Corridor Park on the right.

Hazards: At the Shadeland Ave and I-465 bridges is a drop known as "Suicide Falls" (see photo above). It is the river's most fun and challenging obstacle (if you dare to attempt it).
