Meeting Times and Locations

Primary Location - Hoosier National Forest (Hickory Ridge)

This 48.7 mile trail designed for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking is made up of a variety of long and short loops that wind through scenic hardwoods providing a chance to get away from it all. With a "spaghetti bowl" of trail options almost any distance can be tailored to hike. The trails vary from easy on the flat ridges to difficult if you drop down into the ravines and trail use drops off the further you get from the parking area.
