    This map shows another parking lot off of Berry Ridge Road. The hike in should be around 3.5 miles. Mule, do you think it exists?http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/hoosier/imag...tr_drawing.gif

I would like to hike in from there on Friday, but wouldn't mind being dropped off from someone who parked at the closer lot on Sunday if it turns out to be a long hike. I need to be on the road around 11:30ish to meet my lovely daughter for lunch in Greencastle .
    I second what Mule said.

    Found a satellite view of the area and it looks like there is a small parking lot where Berry Ridge road swings SE off the trail. http://trails.mtbr.com/cat/united-st...0_4546crx.aspx. It could be a shorter distance for those who wish to hike a little. I'll probably do a drive by on the way in. If it works out I'll be parking over there.

    I have not been down the Nebo Ridge trail all the way to where Grizz is starting his hike since the bicycles took the trail over and made it easy to follow. But that trail from Berry Ridge Road to BH may be only a small trail almost like and animal trail, and every ridge has a trail on it and every hollow has a creek running through it. What I am saying is it's very easy to get on the wrong ridge that heads the same direction. If that happpens you may think you are going to one place and end up a ridge off. The problem is you won't know for sure if you are North or South or East of West of the correct ridge. If you have a GPS you should take it for a backup.
    Just two weeks ago when Trout and I and a couple of friends of whom one is maybe the best at knowing where he is that I know of, we got on the wrong ridge and it cost us an hour at least and that's with us having been there before. The forest, ridges and hollows all look the same and there are no marked trails except for the bike trails.

    Headlines....

    Today on Nebo Ridge Trail, 50 eccentric hammockers were rescued. All members of a kooky cult, Hammock Forum .net.

    Homeland Security is looking into the matter...

    I thought there were going to be ribbon markers?

    But, isn't that the Nebo Ridge bike trail that meets Berry road? wouldn't it be well marked?

    Maybe it is the doings of all the Browning Hill haints, remember the electomagnetic field may be interrupted and all your gizmos just go haywire, making for yet another adventerous ramble in the Piney woods. How about we just leave marker ribbon at the appropriate spot and we could always just yell WooooooBuddy every once in a while and hone in on the sound, then again it will probably just echo through the hills and river valleys and we will all become part of the local legend.

    This is sounding pretty scary guys.....I will make sure that I add a magical sword to my kit, one that has had a spell cast upon it by Gandolf the White. There is no sense in messing around you know.
    AnimalControl, I hope you have been keeping up with all this stuff, because it sounds like I am going to need a really good wingman for this hang. Make sure that you bring your OES Batcave with you and we can be twinks.

    Yes there will be trail markers going in from the Nebo Ridge Trailhead on Elkinsville road. That's the only way they will be marked unless Grizz or someone wants to mark their trail from somewhere else. I don't mountain bike so I don't know if the trail is good or not from Berry Ridge Road. I'm not even sure that's a bike trail there. I have helped a few bikers to find their way out of there.
