Trails near Tell City
« on: September 09, 2012, 08:33:53 PM »
I will be traveling to Tell City, IN, for several days.  I can only ride after work and don't have much time to drive and then ride.  Am I asking too much?  Is there a must-hit trail close to Tell City?  I found this link, http://www.indianaoutfitters.com/hoosier_national_forest_in_pro.htm, but I think drive time and sunset may be too much.


Thanks for any advice.

Tipsaw is not terrible. It is not a big loop or very hard, but in a pinch it can still be some fun.

Or bring lights and try Ferdinand forest; about 40 -45 minutes away.  I'll be glad to join you.

Also Hoosier National Forest has a MTB trail in Birdseye not too far from Tell City. Pretty fun trail actually, and Tipsaw is a good trail for the most part, pretty fast. Remember you will need a Trail pass for either of these two properties.
