Yellowwood Lake (Yellowwood State Forest), Nashville (Bloomington)

Directions: Turn down Yellowwood Road from IN State Road 46.  It's between Nashville and Bloomington, although it's actually closer to Nashville.

Trail Information: There are several trails of varying lengths available, and they are printed in brochures that are available at the park office.  My favorite is the Lake Trail, which is 4.5 miles and clearly marked with a double wave pattern, although it overlaps with others and must be monitored closely.  Some shallow stream crossing is required, depending on the season, but it's varied inclines and settings (woods, lowlands, pines) make it an ideal run.

Miscellaneous Information: Lots of landscaping and construction around the lake over the past years have modified the trail slightly and sometimes requires detours.  Pay attention as you run!
