O’bannon Woods State Park – Southern Indiana

O’bannon Woods State Park (OBWSP) – intermediate to advanced riding, rugged, rocky, beautiful views.

Located in Southern Indiana, about 45 minutes west of Louisville and well worth the drive.  OBWSP is a 3,000 acre park surrounded by 26,000 acre Harrison Crawford State Forest and borders the Ohio and Blue Rivers.

There are over 17 miles of singletrack in the park and another 22 miles on the Adventure Hiking Trail.  Unique features such as steep hills and deep ravines, limestone bluffs, caves and waterfalls can be found along the trails.  OBWSP has it all for intermediate to advanced riders.  You can have a big day in the backcountry riding the Adventure Hiking Trail or cruising a well loved jump/flow trail called Breeden Ridge.

Read the Mountain Project description of the Adventure Hiking Trail before heading out.  A popular spot to start your ride is the parking lot to the right of the campsite entrance.  This allows easy access to your car while doing park loops.  Another great place to start is the Fire Tower, found on your right as you enter the park.  Check your sealant, bring a spare tube, have a blast!  Full camping amenities available.
