    Suggest a hike within an hour of indy

    I'm going for a hike and hang Wednesday/Thursday. It needs to be an hourish from Indianapolis.

    I'm wanting to hike 10+ miles each day. I'm not concerned with it being a loop or backtracking. Mostly for exercise and experience.

    I had planned on researching it tonight, but as is usually the case, something has come up.

    Anyone out there have some favorites they want to share? I'm not averse to company if it suits you.

    A big pre-emptive thank you!

    McCormick's Creek? Not sure about the hang, but it's a good hiking area. You will likely see IU students.

    Charles Deam Wilderness just south of Lake Monroe off hwy 441, You can hike 5 miles to the lake and hang along it, lots of campsites,,do a loop, make it even 15 or more miles if you want. Its a nice hike down some big ridges of hardwoods to the lake. Only place you can hang in a State Park is the their campground as they don't allow camping anywhere in the park other than campground.

    I am going to check out the Low Gap Trail at some point.
