There have been so many changes since this book was published in 2000: trails extended - gps capabilities (which did exist then however coordinates aren't cited) - trails closed. This book is a starting point for hiking in Indiana. Yes - it's great that it indicates where things are - but guidance once you get there is a little lacking. Needs an update for GPS - and a revisit to all the locations - frankly she she make this into an ebook.

This detailed guide showcases the 100 best day hikes throughout the state of Indiana. In one handy volume, you will find all the information you need to enjoy self-guided tours of the most scenic hiking paths and trails.

This detailed guide showcases the 100 best day hikes throughout the state of Indiana. In one handy volume, you will find all the information you need to enjoy self-guided tours of the most scenic hiking paths and trails.

Hiking Indiana includes a trail-finder grid so you can choose the hike that has all the features you want. Each trail is marked on an easy-to-read map, and each trail description includes the trail distance, approximate hiking time, difficulty rating, and points of interest along the way. The trails range the full spectrum of difficulty-from short, leisurely strolls to long, rugged hikes-no matter where you want to go:

- From the lake shore in the northwest, through the canyons of the west-central area and the hills of the south, to the river valleys in the far southwest;- From hikes through the urban areas of Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Lafayette, and historic Vincennes to the expansive wilderness of Hoosier National Forest;- From the dunes, ponds, and marshes of Indiana Dunes State Park along Lake Michigan to the Wyandotte Cave State Recreation Area by the banks of the Ohio River.

Hiking Indiana is loaded with information about the park locations of the trails, such as available facilities, hours and dates of operation, important rules, permits required, and directions to the trailhead. It also includes descriptions of the history, terrain, flora, and fauna of each area to make your hike enjoyable and educational. And with listings of nearby attractions, you can turn your day hike into a weekend getaway. With Hiking Indiana, you'll be inspired to take advantage of the many hiking opportunities in the state, letting them guide you to the most scenic and interesting places along every path.

  • I checked this out of the library hoping to find some interesting and challenging places to hike with my sons, but as another reviewer wrote, it's mostly a rehash of what you can find on the DNR site. This book would be OK for those that still aren't on the internet or those that want very simple and short dayhikes (only 2 trails listed are over 4 miles one way).

    What I found quite disappointing was the fact that several trail reviews were not complete because the author only went part of the way because of conditions, weather or remaining daylight. Why would you include a trail if you weren't willing to go back to do a complete review? That leads me to think that either she was stretching to come up with 100 (several excellent choices were left out) or there was a deadline she couldn't meet.

    I also checked out Indiana Best Hikes, and the first 25 pages suggest it is far superior to this one.

  • I have lived in Indiana for 16 yrs and have walked,hiked and horseback rode all the popular spots. This book has already found me a ton of new exciting places to go!
