About Hoosier Hikers Council

The mission of the Hoosier Hikers Council is to build, maintain, and promote high-quality natural trails for hikers and runners in Indiana. We strive to design sustainable and durable trails which reduce maintenance by following topography contours and minimizing water erosion.

We are an organization run exclusively by volunteers, motivated by a desire to give something back to the trails they have enjoyed. We have over 200 members, 600 Facebook fans, and more than 100 active volunteers who log over 2000 hours every year. Most of our work consists of either building or maintaining trails, but we also hold three trail races each year, namely, the “Run with the Foxes” mini-marathon in the spring, the “Knobstone” mini-marathon in the fall, and the Tecumseh Marathon in December.

The Hoosier Hikers Council is probably best known for building much of the 42-mile Tecumseh Trail, which runs from the Headquarters of Morgan-Monroe State Forest to Panther Creek, which is near Crooked Creek just south of SR 46. Other trails we have built can be found on our Trails page.

The Hoosier Hikers Council, Inc. was incorporated in 1995 and is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
