My visit

Memorial Day is usually always a good day to get out and hike. We went in the morning due to the hot weather and the chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. We weren't expecting the trails to be quite as muddy as they were. I'm guessing that Terre Haute has had more rain than Shelburn! We decided to go ahead and hike in the mud. My iphone logged our hike at 2.4 miles. I captured a pic of my shoes towards the end of the hike. Check it out below!

If you are interested in hiking here, I would encourage you to take the map with you. The trails are scattered throughout the woods and it is hard to follow just one trail. The wetlands is probably the most interesting part of the hike. There is a large section of the trail that takes you along people's back yards. I would suggest waiting until it quits raining!
