Hike - Patoka Lake (Main Trail)

This is a moderate, 6.5 mile hike that we did last year around this time (before tick season starts). There is some interesting terrain and lake views. Carpoolers can meet at 9:00 beside Jeffersonville Hardee's. Or meet at 10:10 in the Patoka Lake Visitor Center parking lot (reached via the IND-164 property entrance). There may be a fee to enter the property without an Indiana Park annual pass: $5 per Indiana-registered car, $7 per other car.

    I enjoyed the hike & meeting everyone! I think I slowed you all down (the hills)--sorry about that folks. It was an anniversary for me . . . 15 years ago breast cancer surgery--still alive & hiking (even though I'm slow).

      You have to start somewhere, Jeanette. I was glad to see you, and believe me, I was happy to slow down a little bit.

      It was good to meet you too Kay. I enjoyed it all--just not slowing you all down . . . it was sort of an anniversary celebration for me :-) before heading back to Oregon.

    I am driving and will meet you at the Visitor's Center. I'm going up early to do some birding, if anyone is interested in joining me.

      It is looking for birds and identifying them. You look for them in trees, bushes, fields, on the water and when they are in flight. I will be glad to teach you. I am not an expert but do thoroughly enjoy it. I'll be at the Visitor Center at 9.

    I'll meet the group at the Visitor Center. This will be my first hike with the group. I haven't been to Patoka in a while. Should be a great day.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
