Trails

Nebo Ridge Trail BluetsIndiana hiking and running trails are at the core of HHC’s mission.  We have a large volunteer staff experienced and skilled in designing, constructing, rehabilitating, and maintaining them.  Over the past 22 years the HHC has achieved a sizeable list of trails that we have built.  Some of these include the following:

  • Tecumseh Trail (1997-2001)
  • Adena Trace Trail (1998-2002)
  • Jimmy Nash Trail
  • Kora Meditation Trail
  • Beck’s Mill Hiking Trail System
  • Hitz-Rhodehamel Nature Preserve Loop Trail
  • Brown County HHC Trail (Trail 8)
  • Brown County HHC Trail 9 Extension (2004)
  • Leonard Springs Nature Trail (1999) – Bloomington Parks
  • Yellowwood Lake Trail (1998)
  • Pletzer Trail
  • Pate Hollow Trail (the HHC was one of several volunteer groups)
  • Eagle’s Crest Trail
  • Downey Hill Trail

HikingBut a trail is only as valuable as the extent to which it is used.  For this reason a large part of HHC’s mission, time, and resources are dedicated to providing hikers and trail runners information and events to assist in their use of trails.  As trail builders and very experienced trail users, we are happy to provide you information on terrain, difficulty, parking areas, camp sites, maps, GPS points, water access, and any other important aspects.  Click on a link to the left to learn more information about the listed trails.  There is also a link to posts about known reroutes and other trail issues.  If you cannot find the information you need, feel free to email or call one of our volunteers toll-free at 1-855-812-HIKE.

If you’d like to get involved and help build or maintain trails such as these, check out our Trail Work page!
