McCormicks Creek State Park Day Hike

UPDATE:  There will be snow and it will be cold. 
(yey!).  So, dress appropriately. 

Questions?  You can text me at[masked] or email at my profile link.

Well, the original location, Morgan Monroe SF is pretty busy Dec 7th with the Tecumseh Trail Marathon also scheduled for that morning.  700 runners are participating.  So, I propose an alternative location of McCormick's Creek State Park.  It's close to Indy and fairly interesting hiking.

When: 10 am start. **Please be on site and ready to start at 10 am.**

Where:  Meet at the Inn.


You will need to bring:

• Day Pack
• Liter (or more) of water, sports drink, hydration method of choice
• Snacks, small lunch
• Hiking poles
• COLD weather clothing. 

• YakTrax or other traction devices.

    The Tecumsah Trail Marathon has been canceled. How about that? Something about too much snow, trail conditions, frigid cold. It's going to be around 12 deg for the hike, so, layer up.

      Oh my - that's rather unprecedented for anything to cancel that trail marathon. People travel from all over to that event too.

      I don't have any footwear that goes past my ankles. Anyone know how much snow they actually have on the ground at McCormick Creek State Park?

      It's clear up here in Lafayette. We never got any snow

    The park is sitting in a band of snow most of the day today (Friday). Any person local that might give an accurate snow report?

    How many inches do we think will be present by tomorrow morning?

    The weather tomorrow is supposed to be completely sunny and clear with temps in the mid 20's which would be great. What's not so great for me is I don't have any hiking shoes to keep snow out of my ankles. I do have running gators I could throw on though.

      John, I'm bringing my guitar. You should too. As far as gear, yes high top boots Are not a bad idea. I'm hoping for decent accumulation.

    Added the approximate route. Looks like about 6 miles or 2-3 hours of hiking. Snow, sunshine and good times.

    I've added a couple pictures from Turkey Run during a recent winter hike.

    Wow! Looks like a nice snow event is forecast for Friday! For Saturday, the hiking will be a challenge. If you have traction devices like YakTrax be sure to pack them. It is going to be cold (25). Be sure to dress in warm layers that you can shed or add when necessary.

    Looking forward to my first meetup with this group!! Ive been hiking quite a lot but not backpacking. What is typically included in a Day Pack for this kind of hike and is there any type of pack that is better or recommended?

    November 19, 2013

    • John M.

      a short little one - still hiking till 3:30pm?

      December 2, 2013

    • Matthew (.

      Yes. We should hike the park. It's not that big so we should be done around that time.

      December 2, 2013

  • Kristin

    Will this be roughly same distance?
