The Knobstone Trail Is One Of The Most Underrated Hikes In All Of Indiana
Indiana is just packed with outdoor activities that everyone can enjoy, including miles and miles of hiking trails. There are definitely plenty of hiking trails that everyone takes at least once, but today, we’d like to shine a little light on one of the lesser-known and lesser-appreciated ones. The Knobstone Trail is easily one of the best hikes in Indiana, and we’re certain you’ll love it as much as we do.
It’s important to note that the Knobstone Trail is open for foot traffic only; no bikes, horses, or motorized cars, please! It can be steep at some points, too, and hikers with asthma or other physical limitations will want to consider this while planning their trip. You’ll also weave in and out of the wilderness, occasionally needing to cross roads and highways – use caution!

Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
