Anyone Backpack/geocache In Indiana?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone here that does any GEOCACHING while backpacking in INDIANA? If so where? I'm thinking a one or two night trip in the Hoosier National, but wasn't sure if there are any caches. Input?

I used to do a lot of backpacking on the Knobstone Trail. Unfortunately I have not looked at the cache situation there. Given it is in southern Indiana I would anticipate good things.

The Knobstone Trail is loaded from end to end. The Adventure Trail in Harrison-Crawford Forestry West of Corydon is loaded. I have done a lot of backpacking on both trails before Geocaching. The Knobstone would be a tough 3-day hike doing the entire 50+ miles. The Adventure Trail is more like 20 miles. Both trails are very hilly in places. Morgan-Monroe would also be a good place to backpack but for number of caches I would go with the first 2.

 

The Adventure Trail has 3 sided shelter spread throughout the trail. There are many more caches off the trail also. You could probably do 3-4 days caching there. Have fun.

All the above are great cache areas...HNF is loaded, also check out the north side of Lake Monroe, Pate Hollow Trails...I think close to twenty caches out there and about 10 miles of trails.

 

You could always join is January 14th at Morgan Monroe for the Trail Mix, we will be cache/hiking the Rock Shelter Trail.

There is also a fantastic trail that run around Brookville Res, I believe about 20 miles total but only with a couple of caches. That would be a great location for someone to plant some new caches in so inclined. Here is Indy Diver's
