A big state forest (25,600 acres) with plenty to offer hikers, canoers, backpackers and spelunkers. One of the prettiest areas of southern Indiana, heavily wooded, and with limestone outcroppings, ridges and knobs. Includes the 30-mile Adventure Trail, designed for backpackers with regularly placed shelters or campgrounds and several pick-up/drop-off points. The Adventure Trail spends a good part of its length overlooking either the Blue River (a great canoeing stream) or the Ohio River; it\'s a nice hike. There are also several other shorter trails, some fairly rugged. These aren\'t mountains, but the flatlands of northern Indiana are a long way away. There are several regular canoe runs of various lengths along the Blue River, starting well north of the forest and ending in the Ohio. The Blue is a very pretty creek, not much in the way of heart-stopping excitement but not totally boring either; it has a few riffles and the scenery is outstanding. The forest includes the Post Oak Nature Preserve and the Leavenworth Barrens Nature Preserve. This place is worth an extended visit.
