Eagle Point Buttress. A short but sweet 5-ish mile loop hike, with plenty of opportunity for additional day hiking after setting up camp.
Friday night we will be car camping on the river near the trailhead. Sat. packing up and taking the official Osborne Bend/Trail 240 to its junction with the unofficial trail to our campsite at Eagle Point Buttress. We will set up, and then decide what to do from there-hang out and enjoy the view, wander around some more, whatever.
Easy to moderate trail hike with some minor route finding/bushwhacking to get to the unofficial trail to EPB.
Sunday, we will take the user trail that goes to the base of Eagle Point, drop down to the river and follow the unofficial but well traveled Douglas Trail back to the trailhead.
Unfortunately, Miguels' is closed this time of year, so we will have to find an alternate post hike eating establishment.
we generally meet at the Jameson Inn parking lot located at Southport Rd. and I-65 on Indy's south-side for trips to the Gorge. We can finalize arrangement's before departure, but it's a convenient place to meet and park.
Any questions, you can message me here or give me a call (317)[masked]
