Turkey Run State Park
If you've hiked at Turkey Run before, you'll know it's one of the best hiking spots in the state, and if you haven't hiked there and are ready for something rugged, here's your chance to check it out.
For this hike, we'll be doing about 4 or 4.5 hours and covering between 7 and 8 miles today. The trails we'll be doing go through some rocky gorges and streambeds, and we'll also see a few inclines and some steep staircases. Please be sure to bring plenty to drink and a snack or two.
Admission to the park is $5 per vehicle. We'll be meeting in the parking lot in front of the Nature Center at 1pm. Just look for the crowd of us. Also, restrooms are located inside the Nature Center. A link to a map of the park is located here at the Indiana DNR website.
Car Pool Info: NEW LOCATION! To avoid the Farmer's Market crowd, our car pool will be meeting a new location for this hike, so please be aware that we will not be meeting alongside Broad Ripple High School. Instead, we'll meet along the west side of Bishop Chatard High School, which is on the corner of Kessler Boulevard and Crittenden Avenue, at 5885 Crittenden Avenue. The parking along the street is free on Saturdays. We'll meet on the sidewalk in front of the school and leave at 11am. Please be on time.
