Jimmy RiversCountry roads Indiana, State HP #43  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2014

We drove over to Hoosier Hill from Ohio, where we had "summited" Campbell Hill earlier in the day. The directions from Summitpost were spot on, and we parked just outside the forested area from summit monument and mailbox. Very quiet and peaceful there. A family joined us as we took our pics from our last state HP from a 9 state swing. Sad to end our trip, but happy to be one state HP closer! State HP #43....

Unfortunately I did this one on a VERY snowy day. Slipped off the road and had to wait for a tow truck for 3 hours. Luckily I was listening to a soccer game at the time so I was entertained.

Out of no where a huge blizzard came rolling through on this spring day making the drive from Campbell Hill far more adventurous than I had expected. it stopped snowing when I arrived and i got some cool photos of the nearby field. I wish it was warmer so I could have hung out on this pleasant little HP but oh well I had to drive as fast I could to airport so I didn't get stuck in Indiana overnight. Made it safely HP #27

Parked about 10 miles from Hoosier Hill and rode my mountain bike along the rolling roads to this unremarkable high point. Sometimes you have to work to make these state highpoints fun. HP #15.

marilouWeirdest HP Experience Ever  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 1, 2012

Long drive from NJ where we bagged the OH HP earlier in the day. The weirdest HP experience ever! There were some old folks doing some prayer rituals on the HP with matching chanting, some flags with like arabic writing, Israeli flag with some weird drawings draped on the summit marker, swinging pendulum over the IN map laid on the ground, stainless sword in front of the summit marker, jewel encrusted scepter, white mini-stone tablet with mysterious engraving, capped with blowing of animal horns at the end of each prayer... doesn't get any stranger than that! Anyways, they were pretty nice folks, talked to us and let us sign the register and take photos with no problems.

I was actually pretty surprised how beautiful the area is. The state road up from the interstate was pretty fun with all the sharp up and downs.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2012
Well, we've finally started on what we hope will be a long term adventure with my son (age 12) and daughter (age 8). Visit was on a sunny August morning. So peaceful and quiet at this high altitude. Loved the stone marker for pictures and the nice log box.

Surprisingly charming. The improvements on the "summit" are very nice.

This was the fourth highpoint for my brother and I. The area was very peaceful and well maintained. Snagged one of the postcards as well as a copy of Apex to Zenith for one of my friends who's also interested in highpointing.

Hoosier Hill was my wife and I's second highpoint of the day. This highpoint is so quiet and peaceful. There also is a nice engraved rock that has been placed at the highpoint making it easy to find. No one was there at the time that we were, however per the logbook someone had been there earlier and dropped off some Highpointers Club newsletters. Thank you whomever that was. We had gone to Campbell Hill, OH earlier in the day and is a good one to tackle with this one as it is only about 2 1/2 hours away from this highpoint.

No one else there. Nicely developed site, cute little trail that circumvents the highpoint itself.

The biggest thrill was taking highway 227 south from Hoosier Hill going well in excess of the speed limit. HIGHLY recommended on this roller-coaster road; the fines from any citations would be worth every penny. Not very safe, though, and probably a dick move to the locals.
