Beginning the Knobstone Trail

Over the past two weekends, I’ve been hiking the northern loops of the Knobstone Trail (KT) and I’m quickly falling in love with it. On Black Friday, a small group of us Midwestern adventurers will be trying to see how much of it we can knock out in three days.

All of this is in prep, of course, for a later week-long trek of the Knobstone Hiking Trail (KHT) which is cleverly acronymed to represent the Knobstone, Heritage, and Tecumseh trails, all linked together to form the longest continuous trail in Indiana. Some of it is still on country roads, but the KHT trail advocacy group is acquiring easements (rights-of-way) from land owners and getting more and more of it back up the hills.

I will thru-hike the KHT before I thru the Appalachian Trail, both of which are goals. For now, enjoy the eye candy.
