Miller Ridge

Overview

Miller Ridge loops through the Yellowwood State Forest and is rated intermediate. This trail is particularly busy since it's located in forest used for many different activities. You may encounter loggers, hunters, forest service staff and Purdue Research students. This trail is also used for handicap hunter access, so you may come across hunters on ATVs during hunting season. However, it is advised that you should avoid riding during deer hunting season.

Terrain

Miller Ridge includes doubletrack logging roads and gravel forest roads. It also has some steep sections, and the southern part has some forest service water bars.

Access

Miller Ridge can be accessed from Crook Creek Road.

You can park at either northern parking lot (the Upper Handicap Hunter Parking Lot) or the lower parking lot (Lower Handicap Parking Lot).

Food and drink

As the trail is in the remote area, please prepare your own food and drink.

Further info

The nearest facilities are pit toilets around 2 miles south of the trail at the Boat Ramp.

Since this is a backcountry ride, you should be self-sufficient with anything you might need, including spare parts.
