Just minutes down the road you’ll find the Jackson Washington State Forest and the Knobstone Trail system. The Knobstone Trail is Indiana's longest footpath - a 60-mile backcountry-hiking trail passing through Clark State Forest, Elk Creek Public Fishing Area, and Jackson-Washington State Forest. These state resource properties contain more than 42,000 acres of rugged, forested land in Clark, Scott, and Washington counties in southern Indiana. The trail extends from Deam Lake, just north of State Road 60 in Clark County, to Delaney Park, just east of S.R. 135 in Washington County. The initial 32-mile segment of the trail was opened in 1980. The trail traverses land with extreme relief distinguished by narrow, relatively flat-topped ridges typical of the Knobstone Escarpment - a knobby slope between the Norman Upland and Scottsburg Lowland, two of southern Indiana's natural land regions. The Knobstone Escarpment is one of Indiana's most scenic areas, rising more than 300 feet above low-lying farmland in some areas as it snakes northward from near the Ohio River to just south of Martinsville. A central upland, mixed hardwood forest (oak-hickory and beech-maple association) dominates much of the escarpment. "Knobstone" shale, which is a combination of weathered brown shale, sandstone, and siltstone, is common in the area and gives the escarpment its name. The Knobstone Trail passes primarily through state forests, which are managed for multiple uses including recreation, timber and wildlife production, and watershed protection. The areas are open to the public for hunting during season and are managed actively to increase the fish and wildlife population. Timber management and harvesting also provide diverse cover and food necessary for the perpetuation of many game and non-game animal species and helps ensure that forest resources will be available for future generations. This tract has been in the same family for many years and the decision to sell wasn’t easy. However, there is time for everything and now is the time for the current owner to pass this beautiful place on to someone else that might enjoy it as much as they have. Many outdoor memories have been made here and many more will be, by the new owners. This beautiful place will be shown by appointment only with advanced notice.
