Example text

Steeped in mystery, they were once a common feature across the eastern forests of the United States. Formed by bending and tying down a young sapling, they served as a powerful tool in the daily cultural life of Native American people. These human-shaped guides served as an unwritten form of communication pointing toward significant sites such as large bodies of fresh water and tribal boundaries, and may have defined important trails. The typical Native American tree is a white oak with a bend several feet from its base, with the main trunk extending horizontally for several more feet.

Delaney Creek Park also had the plan to provide an alternative to the Spurgeon Hollow Trailhead for accessing the Knobstone Trail from the northern end. Payne agreed to help improve the 5-mile northern section of the loop trail, making it easier to find, use, and tie the 8-mile loop trail into the Knobstone Trail. He knew there would be extra trail construction work, but the section of the trail along the ridge in Delaney Creek Park contained excellent backcountry camping sites, while the developed campground in the park provided a safe and convenient place for people to leave vehicles.

To commemorate the milestone, Connie Shidaker, graphic artist with the DNR’s Outdoor Indiana magazine, created a 3-dimensional, original wall sculpture with layers of hand-cut, colored construction paper depicting the trail winding through the forested knobs and around the lakes, with the Ohio River and Louisville in the foreground and Indianapolis in the background. Poster reproductions of the display were then printed for public distribution, adding a beautiful final touch to the long and involved trail project.
