Are you looking for a challenging backpacking trip contained within a weekend? Do you love good meals on the trial? Join up for the second of two parts of a through hike of the Tecumseh Trail, one of Indiana’s best long distance trails. We will start at Indian Hill where we left off in June and hike through Brown County to the end of the trail. We will overnight at the backcountry site on Indian Hill on Friday night. On Saturday we will make our way across some of the prettiest parts of Brown County to end at Yellowwood State Forest where we will camp overnight in the campground. Sunday will we tackle Scarce O’Fat ridge and the southbound hike to Crooked Creek near Lake Monroe. Those who also hiked Part One of the hike will have completed the entire trail.
Gourmet meals are an additional feature of this hike. A barbeque chicken feast, cinnamon rolls & bacon and trail-baked deluxe brownies will be part of our menu.
To complete the full trail, also sign up for the Tecumseh Trail Part One hike on June 29-July 1. The fee covers camping fees, 2 gourmet campsite breakfasts, and 2 gourmet campsite dinners. Participants will be responsible for trail lunches and snacks.
