“Create a loop using this great Hoosier NF trail.
— Nate Hawkins
Trail 3 can be used to create a loop along with Hickory Ridge Trail 1
, as it intersects it at each end. It also intersects with Trails 11, 12, and 13.
Traveling counter-clockwise on this trail, after intersections with Trails 11, 12, and 13, you'll intersect with the gravel Horse Camp Rd. At this intersection, head east for approx 700 ft and Trail 3 will pick up again on the north side of the road. Hickory Ridge Trail 3 will begin to loop back around to the west, and will cross the intersection of Hickory Grove Rd. and Horse Camp Rd. near the other end of Trail 12
before intersecting with Trails 1 and 10.
Trails nearest the Horse Camp receive higher horse traffic and, therefore, have more horse bogs. They are better to ride in the wintertime when frozen.
