    Steve - There is a fairly active backpacking group on thebackpacker.com

    What part of Indy are you from?

    Default Indiana

    I'm in Bloomington. Tons of hiking opportunities down here, including the Tecumseh Trail and Knobstone Trail, if you're looking for a backpacking opportunity. Deam Wilderness (South side of Lake Monroe) is also excellent.
    It's a great day to be alive !

    Deam is great for a weekend of relaxation. It is simply beautiful in the fall.
    Knobstone is AT-like and full of PUDS.
    Morgan-Monroe is another nice destination.

    I live in Central Illinois but hike at Deam quite often. Mostly with folks from thebackpacker.com

    Default Bloomington Hikers

    I also live in Bloomington and hike occassionally with the Bloomington Hikers. They hike mainly in the Deam Wilderness and Yellowwood State Forest with occasion ventures to other areas of the state.

    Their website lists the weekly hikes and you can have that information e-mailed to you as well.
