Fountain City, Indiana Map

Beautiful drive. Stopped and bought tomatoes and sweet corn from a local farmer. Highest Point #16 for us :)

Not really a trail, but a nice drive with the family. bring a packed lunch and make a picnic of it. Make it a full trip and stop by Fountain City Acres (closed Sundays, bring cash they don't take cards) or Miller's Dry Goods Store. Or visit the Levi Coffin house while you're in the area.

Indiana High Point

Not much hiking but a really cool country drive through some farm land and a well marked and maintained high point.

Awesome set up for the high Point with the rock monument, mailbox register, bench and the info/picture on the card stock.

Not much of a trail, really.
Hoosier Hills is on private property and was constructed by Eagle Scouts a long time ago. The "Trail" is accessible by car. More specifically, there is a gravel road next to a corn field that you park. You walk maybe 10 feet and you're there. Once there, there is a fire pit, a picnic table, two bench seats, a mailbox containing a log book and ink pen to write "Your name here, was here at such and such date", and the Cairn stone marking the highest point in Indiana.
There are some small trails leading off in the woods, one to the left which leads to the corn field. One to the front which leads maybe 20 feet back in the woods and another to the right which leads to the one in the center.
Certainly not a hiking trail of any sort, and since it's private property I am not sure if camping is an option, so do it at your own risk. This is more like something to bring the family to for a picnic or if you just want to say you stood at the highest point in Indiana. Not much else, really.

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.
