The Uplands region of south-central Indiana has many opportunities for you to experience the remarkable topography and physiography of the Hoosier State. This area includes the rolling hills of Brown County State Park, sometimes referred to as the “Little Smokies,” the forested hills of Yellowwood and Morgan-Monroe State Forests, Paynetown State Recreation Area on Monroe Lake, and the Pate Hollow area of Hoosier National Forest. In addition to these, many smaller nature preserves, county and city parks, and conservation lands offer a variety of recreational activities. With camping, boating, biking, and more than 100 miles of various trails, there are ample opportunities to explore the outdoors. The underlying geology in this region includes the bedrock unit known as the Borden Group; in the eastern portions of the map area, these rocks create the steep hills and narrow valleys that will test even the most seasoned outdoor enthusiast. To the west, the various limestone units feature caves, swallow holes, and sinkholes. This area is also home to the Tecumseh Trail, developed by the Hoosier Hikers Council between 1998 and 2002. This 42-mile trail begins in Morgan-Monroe State Forest and travels south through Yellowwood State Forest to the Hoosier National Forest boundary. This map covers the southern 20 miles of the trail from Lanam Ridge Road to its terminus at Panther Creek. Camping is allowed along the trail but only within designated areas or campgrounds. Visit in.gov/dnr/forestry/3631.htm for detailed rules and regulations in each state forest. As you explore this diverse region of south-central Indiana, please remember to take only memories and leave only footprints.
