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.
Was impressed by the comfortable site. Benches, Picnic table, Register.. Sign Post replaced by engraved stone marker. Access to 'Trailhead' is now a gravel driveway.. 'Summit' cards for date of ascent.. Postcard for High Point.. all very nice (and didn't have any trouble with the 'skeeters'..
Hoosier Hill! Thanks to the land owners for allowing people to visit. This is my wifes and mine first highpoint! 49 to go. The day we visited was a beautiful winter day 25* and sunny. There was about an inch of snow. Wish we could have stayed longer but were trying to get to Campbell Hill Ohio before dark, which we did but it closes at 3:30 on Saturdays. (Read the Red Tape Dummy)
This was a pretty cool highpoint, and good thing too, because I wasn't too impressed with Indiana until we got to the highpoint.
Drove 4 hours for this one. Enjoyed a beer at "the top" where it was sunny, windy and cold... Incredible cornfield vistas.
Lots of rain and soggy corn.
With Jess, Rick, Mary, and Tim, at night.
Nice day on our way to through Indiana.
This was SHP #16 for me. There is a register to sign. (thanks to the person that maintains it) On the day I was there a couple of others had signed in as well. The locals must think we are crazy!
Pleasant drive from I-70 brought us to Indiana's highest point. Heck, it was even the first time being in the state. Walked a looped path thru the woods and saw no higher ground than what is marked.
Beautiful spring day, no bugs. #24 for me, #11 for Lillian. Met fellow highpointers Mary and Bob from western Mass. at the "summit". It was #16 for them. Had great burgers complete with car hops at Jim's Place in Greenville, OH on our way to Campbell Hill.
Drove over there today from Dayton in ridiculous driving rain. If you didn't know ahead, you would never find it as all the signs are missing. Got pretty wet but another one marked off the list.
Eighth highpoint! Love the road to the point, almost thought I was going to go airborne a few times!
Easy to find. Road sign at actual HP missing as well as actual 'summit' sign. It's just a wooden post with the name and elevation written in pen.
Just drove from Ohio's HP. I was disappointed that the sign was missing at the actual HP. The bugs were bad. Next HP will be Black MTN in Kentucky.
Tons of bugs and not a good view. The road driving from it was a fun experience though!
We accidently went here instead of OH's first. We were then attacked by killer flying bugs. we barely made it out alive. 1st of 10 HP's of the trip
