Take a walk in the woods through the Hoosier National Forest along part or all of the 23 mile German Ridge Trail a multiple-use loop trail that winds through many tall pine stands. Hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking are all allowed on this trail, which offers views of sandstone rock outcrops, bluffs, rolling hills of hardwood forests and the mighty Ohio River.
For a much shorter trail in the German Ridge Recreation Area check out the hiking-only German Ridge Lake Trail which encircles the German Ridge Lake, offers a historic campground and even some stone steps.
Camping is available. For more information and maps, visit http://www.indianaoutfitters.com/Destinations/Hoosier_National/German_Ridge_Trail.htm
