Bluffs of Beaver Bend, "Visit spectacular bluffs along a mile of White River; one of southern Indiana's most scenic preserves"

This special hike celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Division of Nature Preserves!

This site consists of a mile long, steep-sided bluff situated in a bend of the White River. The principal natural features of the property include cliffs and rockshelters of Mansfield sandstone running the length of the bluff, and mesic and dry-mesic forest communities. The various habitats support a diversity of plant species, in particular a wide variety of ferns. Additionally this stretch of the White River is considered significant for its healthy mussel populations and several rare fish species. Bald Eagles frequent this stretch of river and are common visitors to the property.

US 50/150 runs through Shoals. Take US 50 into town. Turn south onto Water St (CR 63), which is immediately east of the bridge over the White River. Go south to Spout Springs Rd, a 'T' on the right. The preserve is on both sides of the road. The parking lot is about 0.13 mile up the lane.

  • Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray.
  • Bring binoculars and a hand lens, if you have them.
  • No restroom facilities.
