Fall hike
« on: June 08, 2013, 09:32:43 PM »

OK I need to start planning a small hike for this fall.

Looking for 3 nights 4 days.  Around 40 miles unless the trail is really rugged (but that is subjective of course).  A loop would be great but if it is one way and there is a way to hook up a ride back to the car that would be cool as well.

I am in central Indiana, I would say within a 6 hour drive would be ok..

What are your thoughts?

I have been to Arkansas in the Ozarks on the OHT which was great but the drive is a bit on the long end for such a short trip.  Been on a lot of the trails in the Gorge but never put a string of them together for multiple nights.  Hiked the Tecumseh in Indiana a couple of times.

Well throw out your ideas. Thanks in advance!

There are some nice, three night, four day hikes in the BSF in TN.  Park your car at Bandy Creek Campground and make a loop around the entire BSF in that area.  It is about 36-38 miles.

Try the Pine Mountain Trail on the Ky/Va border

Of course I am prejudice.  Come to the Sheltowee Trace - sheltoweetrace.org, there are multiple great weekend and short hikes you can do on the Trace or using the Trace for a loop hike.
