The Knobstone Escarpment forms the Uplands region of south-central Indiana and contains many opportunities for you to experience the remarkable topography and physiography of the Hoosier State. This area includes the Deam Lake State Recreation Area, Clark State Forest, Jackson-Washington State Forest, state nature preserves, state conservation areas, and fish and wildlife areas. This area offers more than 100 miles of recreational trails in Clark, Scott, and Washington Counties. Rising above the gently sloping flood plain valleys, the area’s rugged physiography is related to its underlying geology. Although the steep hills and slopes may test even the most seasoned outdoor enthusiast, you will be inspired to crest that next ridge to see another wonderful vista of the forest and lowlands. This area is also home to Indiana’s longest footpath, the Knobstone Trail (KT). This backpacking trail begins in the Deam Lake State Recreation Area in Clark County and travels north to Delaney Park in Washington County. It traverses both Clark State Forest and Jackson-Washington State Forest and was specifically developed and managed as a hiking trail restricted to foot traffic only. Visit in.gov/dnr/forestry/4224.htm to check trail conditions and possible re-routes or closures. As you explore this diverse region of south-central Indiana, please remember to take only memories and leave only footprints.
