The Morgan-Monroe Hike-Bike Trail is affectionately referred to as the “Breaking Away Trail” based on the Little 500 movie that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.  The trail is a five-mile long paved path through the forest allowing users to commune with nature on a smooth surface - optimal not just for hikers, but also cyclists and wheelchairs. The trail connects the entrance of the forest to the campground, fire tower, and the new Indiana Department of Natural Resources offices.
