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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
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!
