This is one of Indiana's longest backpacking trails. It begins in the north in the Morgan/Monroe State Forest and transitions into the Yellowwood State Forest to the south. It ends at the boundary with the Hoosier National Forest. Camping is only permitted in a few areas. 1) in the northern part of the trail (Morgan/Monroe State Forest) east of low gap road, at a shelter about 1/3 of way through the hike or at the yellowwood campground. Water in the streams is intermittent and likely won't be available in the fall.

Getting Started

The northern trailhead is at the Morgan/Monroe State Forest Offices and the Southern Trailhead is just south of Crooked Creek lake in Yellowwood State Forest South of IN-46.

    Spent three days on this trail and really enjoyed it for the most part. There are a few places overgrown but not terrible. Lovely seclusion in the woods with beautiful scenery.
