|At the summit of Indiana|
This is one of six entirely privately owned state high points. The others are also mostly in the midwest- Sunflower Mountain (Kansas), Black Mountain (Kentucky), White Butte (North Dakota), Driskill Mountain (Louisiana) and Campbell Hill (Ohio). The landowners graciously allow and encourage people to "hike" to the highpoint. Other than basic rules of leave no trace and respecting private land, there are no other special restrictions. I would recommend only visiting in daylight hours.
Previous trip reports indicate that there are no signs marking the highpoint though this has more recently changed. It is an easy place to miss if you're not looking for it as there is no real parking lot though. Other than the parking area itself, it is all paved roads to the top.
|"Summit Approach" from the southwest couloir|
Summit registers are always fun to read- there were couples and families from all across the state and country who drove to this place. Its a popular location due to its ease of accessibility. Ohio's state high point is only about 1 hour and 45 minutes away by drive as well, making the two often being completed in the same day for those who care. Ohio's high point has a far more obvious rise, especially if traveling from the West.
That makes 34/50 for me in highpointing! Onward to Ohio!
