There’s Nothing Quite As Magical As The Nature Preserve You’ll Find At Shades State Park In Indiana

Nature lovers, let’s be real here: Indiana is a fantastic state to get outside and enjoy. With more than 4,000 miles of incredible trails weaving throughout the entire state, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this area once you get used to it. There are 24 state parks total in the Hoosier State; Shades State Park in Indiana, for example, is a delight – but there’s a park within that park that you’ve got to see to believe, too. Somehow, it’s one of the locals’ best-kept secrets, and we think it deserves a little appreciation (and a good long hike).

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

For more photos, information, and more, make sure to visit the official Visit Indiana page for the preserve. For more information about Shades State Park, including directions, daily use fees, and more, make sure to check out the official website.
