The Sweedy Hollow area on the southwest portion of loop is beautiful. There's even a stone cove in one of the hills. The northern part of trail isn't so thrilling because a lot of it is gravel road, which is tiresome to the feet. Also the part alongside Forest Rd is a bit underwhelming due to logging and erosion. Perfect length for a serious jaunt though.Show more

Length: 41.1 mi • Est. Multi-day
Important!: Before hiking or backpacking this trail, be sure to check the HHC website (https://www.hoosierhikerscouncil.org/category/trail-conditions/) or the DNR for information on trail or camping area closures. The forest on which the Tecumseh traverses is very actively logged by the DNR and private owners, so closures and trail re-routes are frequent. Sometimes trail reroutes can add miles of road-walking, which can drastically alter the nature of the hike you might have been expecting. Show more
