Scarce O'Fat Trail

North High King Trail along road to the spillway - YELLOWWOOD STATE FOREST
Nashville, IN 47448

Yellowwood State Forest has several hiking trails which range in length from 1/3rd of a mile to 5 miles.  The 4.5 mile loop around Yellowwood Lake is one of the most popular, as it offers great views down the ravines and across the lake.  The 4.7 mile Scarce O’ Fat Loop takes you over High King Hill, a round knob almost 200 feet above the lake, and then follows the ridge by which the trail is named.  Hikers are also welcome on the 19 miles of horse trails which wind throughout the forest.The 42-mile Tecumseh Trail also passes through Yellowwood, borrowing parts of the Yellowwood Lake Trail and Scarce O’ Fat Trail.
