Located just outside the art colony of Nashville, in south/central Indiana, Brown County State Park sprawls over 15,696 acres, making it the largest and most popular park in the Hoosier State. The park was established in 1929, and in 1934, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed many of the buildings, roads, shelters, ovens and trails that visitors to the park still enjoy today.
In a state that is known for its flat farmland, this is an area of wooded hills with the second highest point in Indiana, Weed Patch Hill, located within the park. These hills are sometimes referred to as the "Little Smokies" because of frequent low lying fogs in the forested valleys.
Karen and I visited Brown County over the long Martin Luther King Junior weekend in January, 2006. Although it was the dead of winter, we had a very enjoyable three days of hiking, exploring, and experiencing this special place of quiet beauty.
