The Uplands region of south-central Indiana provides ample opportunities to experience the remarkable topography and physiography of the Hoosier State. This area includes the forested hills of Morgan-Monroe and Yellowwood State Forests, Lake Lemon, and other smaller nature preserves, parks, and conservation lands that offer a variety of recreational activities such as camping, boating, and biking. The underlying geology in this region includes the bedrock unit known as the Borden Group, which forms the steep hills and narrow valleys that will test even the most seasoned outdoor enthusiast. The northern portion of this area includes the flood plain of the White River, an area of massive glacial outwash during the last Ice Age that is covered with meander scars and abandoned channels from ancient and modern-day floods. 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 northern 22 miles of the trail from the Morgan-Monroe ranger station to Lanam Ridge Road. Camping is allowed along the trail but only within designated areas or campgrounds. Visit in.gov/dnr/forestry/3631.htm for detailed rules, regulations, and trail reroutes or closures in each state forest. As you explore this diverse region of south-central Indiana, please remember to take only memories and leave only footprints. Combine this digital topographic trail map with a folded two-sided map printed on waterproof, tear-resistant paper at a scale of 1 inch to 1/2 mile, available late November 2020.
