Peninsula Trail, Charles Deam Wilderness

Nice little trip up the peninsula in Deam to camp on the shore of lake Monroe. This is a great trip for beginners. Its a short 4.8 miles in to the shore where we will set up camp. Swimming there will be an option. The trail is easy to moderate. We will meet at the Grubb Ridge trailhead.

This trip is cross posted to the Indy Backpackers too, it is only necessary to RSVP on one.

    Is this a dog friendly area? I have a jack russell who backpacks with me.

      Yes it is, as long as the dog is people friendly.

    Sorry Ron. I have another trip that weekend. FYI, the peninsula gets crowded this time of year. Hard to get a site on the lake.

      If anyone is coming from Indy, I can arrange a pick up of the marshmallow goodness.
