Indian Hill Trail in Indiana ready for hikers

The new one-and-a-half mile Indian Hill Trail built this spring by Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge is ready for new hikers.

Indian Hill Trail is a double loop, where you can walk a full outer loop without a connector trail, or opt for a shorter option with the connector, explained Heath Hamilton, assistant refuge manager at Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge.

The 7,500 acre wildlife refuge is still acquiring land, he said. The Indian Hill trail is in the Columbia Mine Unit maintained by Sycamore Land Trust and PRNWR.

Hikers can experience the Indian Hill Savanna, Paddlefish Pond and Indian Hill Lake, and enjoy a wide diversity of wildlife.
