Hoosier Hill - Indiana's Highpoint is a 0.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Fountain City, Indiana that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
At 1,257 feet in height this hill is an easy state highpoint to grab in Middle America. This highpoint is located in Wayne County, Indiana on the border of Ohio. Because this highpoint is simply a hill you can drive to (very flat) this guide will mostly serve as directions on how to find it. The drive from Indianapolis (the state capital) to the highpoint will take about an hour and a half and will be around 80 miles.
To call this a trail is quite generous. There's a gravel drive off of Eliot Rd north of Bethel Rd. From there, it's about a 50 ft walk up a very small hill into the woods. At the high point, there's a stone marker, a bench, a picnic table, and a mailbox with a log book inside. It's a fun place to visit, especially with kids.
