Salamonie River State Forest



Location: From Wabash, 6 miles on US 24, then right on SR 524 to CR100S; turn left and the forest is on the north side.

Description: Not Visited. This is tiny, 780 acres, but offers 9 miles of trails for hiking or cross-country skiing. The Salamonie River runs along the north boundary, and is reported to be a good canoe trip when the dam is releasing water (Salamonie Reservoir is right next door). Some of the trails are reported to be heavily overused by horse riders.

Nearby Points of Interest: A whole slew of reservoirs if you're into reservoirs. I'm not, frankly.

Cautions: Hunting seasons for deer, squirrel, rabbit and quail. Can be very snowy in winter.

Facilities: 32 primitive campsites in two campgrounds; cross-country skiing trails, no rentals.
