Hoosier Hill, Indiana (State High Point #17), June 26, 2011.

Hoosier Hill, Indiana (1257'), June 26, 2011.

Mileage: Drive up

Directions to highpoint: (from From Indianapolis, Indiana take I-70 East 
until you get to Richmond, Indiana. Take route 227 North up to Franklin Township. Go 
about 10 miles.  Take a left on Bethel Road, follow it for about a mile and then take a right 
on Elliot Road and head north for almost a mile. There is the short trail to the top that is well marked. 

I had to be at a conference in Indianapolis and flew in two days early to visit the state high points of Indiana and Ohio (see Ohio report). 

Hoosier Hill is in the woods on the edge of a cornfield.  There's a USGS marker on the ground down (and across) the street about six feet in from the road. I traipsed around the area but couldn't find it.

Well signed.
It really IS next to a corn field!
House nearby.

Short path in.

Register :)

It's a sweet tribute to Indiana's high point.  I signed the register, took some photos and headed to Ohio to visit their high point, Campbell Hill.
