Event Description:

Registration is full. 

The Division of Nature Preserves is teaming up with some of our partner organizations and land trusts to hold a series of  hikes on nature preserves.  The partner for this hike is INPAWS - Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society.

Tall Timbers Trail is a 1.9 mile hike through some of the Big Walnut Nature Preserve's most impressive woodlands.  Dramatic ravines, several types of high quality forests with towering hardwoods, and the potential for uncommon and beautiful wildflowers such as the Indian cucumber root, the guyandotte beauty, showy orchis, and blue cohosh.  Prepare for small stream crossings (wet feet).

Directions:  Take US 36 (Ernie Pyle Memorial Highway) west from Indianapolis to Bainbridge.  From the traffic light (only one) in the middle of Bainbridge, turn right (north) onto N Washington St.  Follow this road as it curves right (CR 800 N), then left (CR 250 E) to North Putnam High School.  At the first gravel road north of the high school (CR 950 N), turn right (east).  Proceed just over 1.0 mile on this grave road to a parking lot.
