Indiana Highpoint - Hoosier Hill - 1257 ft

Back to 2005 Northeast Highpoint Expedition
This highpoint seems to have been improved significantly since the guidebooks were written. (One of the register entries mentioned a Scout project.) After driving south on Elliot Road for 0.3 miles, just past the grove of trees, there is now a gravel driveway to the right, marked with a street sign labeled 'Highest Point'. Down this road, 20 yards or so, there is a short trail to the right, up to the highpoint. No more fence, no more stile. There is a cairn, a sign, a register in a brick mailbox, and a picnic table at this highpoint now. I reached the top at 6:15 ET, but given Indiana's creative use (dis-use) of Daylight Savings Time, who knows what the actual local time was!
My car parked along the new gravel road. At the end of the short road, a short trail heads right into the trees and to the highpoint.
