We were looking for an outdoor activity away from campus on a recent visit with our student at IU. We picked the Sycamore Trail because it is nearby the Hickory Ridge Lookout Tower. The first section of the trail was very quiet, with not many hikers. The creek along the trail was dry due to the recent drought. It was an OK hike but nothing that is a must see. Best part is that the hike loops around to the Hickory Ridge Lookout Tower which is a must!

We went to Hemlock Cliffs in English, IN on New Years since the sunshine was out. There is only one trail, about a mile, but it is worth the trip. The waterfall is great and you follow a creek to it. There are a few difficult spots on the trail as you walk down steep rock steps to the falls so beware of that if you have little kids or pets. There hadn't been a lot of rainfall leading up to when we went so I would love to back to see it after more rain. you drive down a gravel road for two miles before reaching the parking lot. You are able to camp here although we did not. It is a great hidden gem to spend a few hours at!

Tremendous outdoor fun, even in late fall! I would strongly recommend, only a short drive from Bloomington.

This is a classic go to spot. I love going to the top of the fire tower. You can see a couple of the dorms from Indiana University way in the distance. You feel like you are in the middle of no where. Which, you kind of are... it takes 7 miles of driving on a gravel road to get there. Awesome hiking trails begin at the tower. On a fall day, you can get some pretty awesome views.

Tucked into the northeast corner of the Hoosier National Forest in between U.S. Route 150 and State Road 37 just south of Paoli is a special little 88-acre tract of land. It is, in fact, the largest parcel of old growth forest left in the state. Before settlers began clearing the land for farms, towns, etc., Indiana was covered with trees, in fact 90% of the state was forestland. Even those forests that are left have been harvested and replanted or otherwise altered over the past couple hundred years. This little plot escaped these changes.

Originally purchased by a Joseph Cox in 1816, it stayed untouched in the Cox family for over a century. When finally put up for sale in 1940, a timber company bought the land, but before they could harvest the timber, pressure from area residents prompted the U.S. Forest Service to purchase the land back and ultimately designate it a Research Natural Area to preserve it, protecting it further by adding a buffer of 165 additional acres.

There is a roughly 1.5 mile paved (actually an old access road that is now gated) and dirt foot trail that runs from a well marked parking lot on SR 37 to another unmarked little (3 or 4 space) parking area off US 150 (at its intersection with S. Triangle Rd.). It is a surprisingly peaceful place for a walk - once you get away from the roads on either side, all you'll hear is the wind through the trees and the occasional bird call. However, as it is protected land, hunting, camping, target shooting, and plant collecting are not allowed. Horses and bikes are also prohibited.

We visited on a sunny fall morning in October just as the leaves were changing and literally had the entire tract of land to ourselves - the walk along the trail from one end to the other and back took just under an hour. We only wish we'd come a couple weeks later when we're sure the fall colors would have been fantastic.

First time staying at the Indian-Celina South Loop. Camp host was great. It was a mid week stop, so there was no crowd at all. Clean, comfortable. Electric only. Water spigot at the entrance as well as trash dumpster. If there was a dump station, I did not see it.

The dump station is located on State Highway 37 across from Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area, a few miles south of the Indian-Celina Lakes area. We're glad you enjoyed your visit to the Hoosier National Forest!

I stayed 2 nights in the Hoosier National Forest as part of an 18-state road trip with a focus on hiking and tent camping.

I stayed in the Indian-Celina campground which is very close to I-64, and is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed in. The rangers were helpful and polite, there is a beautiful pair of lakes, and plenty of hiking trails. The campsites are spacious and have plenty of vegetation in between which aids in privacy. The bathroom/showerhouse was in excellent condition. Lake Celina has a historic house from pioneer settlers on its shores, as well as that family's mid-19th century cemetery.

Pioneer Mothers State Wayside is a nice hike through old-growth forest near Paoli. Other reviews have touched on this attraction. It was an easy hike on a well-established trail. I didn't see another soul when I hiked on it.

I hiked several miles on the German Ridge network of trails. Ticks abound in this part of the forest, so check yourselves/your dogs/horses afterward. It seemed to be mainly a horse trail. Trails were usually well marked, but not always. Rolling hills is how I would describe this hike; lots of ups and downs, but not overly strenuous.

The Hoosier National Forest is a nice area to explore nature without the crowds of some of the bigger name parks and destinations. I visited the area on a July weekend, but rarely saw anyone else on the trails or in the campground.

Pioneer Mother's: This special piece of the Hoosier National Forest is an 88 acre tract of virgin forest which was purchased undeveloped in 1816, and owned by a family until 1940. The local community believed it should continue to be preserved in its virgin state and raised the money to purchase it and donate it to the Forest Service. No trees in the tract can be cut down, there is a rock wall memorial dedicated to the pioneer mothers at the center. There are archaeological sites in the tract, but they are not marked and not to be disturbed.
There is a parking lot and trail head to your left off Indiana state 37 about a mile southeast of Paoli. Parking is free, and the trailhead is well marked. There are no markings once you enter the tract. It is a bit of a scramble to get down the hill into the tract, but after that the trail is relatively level and easy to follow. The trail is maintained in that trees that fall across the trail are cut through and the trail kept clear, otherwise everything lies where it falls. It is really interesting to see this forest and realize it has looked just like this since before the discovery of America!
There is also a trail head on the right off US 150 going east out of Paoli. The trail north from 37 and the trail south from 150 meet at the Memorial wall in the center of the tract. This trail is not handicapped accessible, but it is not difficult - my wife has bad arthritis and was able to traverse everything with just a hand-holder at slick or steep spots.

Wesley Chapel Gulf- This is a canyon formed when the roof of a cave system (Lost River) collapsed. Drive north on Indiana 37 out of Paoli towards Orleans, and turn left on 490 N before you reach Orleans. ( Our GPS called it 500 N, but at the turnoff it is marked 490 N - the road sign changes to 500 N at a crossroads just west of 37.) Wesley Chapel church stands at a crossroads a couple of miles due west down this road. Turn left at the church and look for a brown National Forest parking sign with a big P on your left at the top of the next hill. A trail, unmarked except that it had been recently mowed with a lawnmower, exits the south side of the parking lot and leads over a little meadow to a patch of woods. You may note an occasional splotch of orange paint on the ground as a trail marker. The trail divided at the patch of woods, and we took the left fork, which is what you want. The trail runs along the edge of the gulf to the south end, around the south end of the small narrow canyon, then gradually descends to the canyon floor as you approach the north end on the west side. There is a green pool and a spring at the north end. The trail again was easy enough that my wife could walk it with minimal assistance. It's about a 25 or 30 minute walk from the parking lot to the spring and pool. The gulf is designated a National Natural Landmark due to the interesting and unusual land features.
Both of these sites are relatively isolated from the main body of the national forest, but both are worth the time to find and hike. We did both in the same morning.
