Summerset Trail

Stretching eleven miles from Carlisle to Indianola, the Summerset Trail passes through rolling hills and wetland river bottom as it winds from town to town. In the middle sits the village of Summerset on the south bank of the Middle River. Restroom facilities with running water are available at the Indianola trail head and pit toilets are available at the Carlisle trail head and at Banner Lakes at Summerset State Park at the trail’s half-way point. Parking is available at all three points.


This trail has it all, from rolling hills to a wetland river bottom as it winds from town to town.  Just outside of the banner pits area is a scenic area equipped with an observation platform.  The platform is a great spot for birding as well as a nice break on an afternoon stroll.
