Lincoln State Park, located east of Evansville not far from Holiday World, is a welcome break from the hectic travel on Interstate 64.
The kids and I enjoyed an afternoon hike at Lincoln State Park during our Easter travels. The park is across the street from the Lincoln Boyhood National Historic Site, where we’ve enjoyed the Junior Ranger program in the past.
Since we knew storms would be coming soon, we parked not far from the park entrance at the bicentennial plaza.
The kids liked wandering among the pillars and even shook Abe Lincoln’s hand.
We then took the hilly trails to see the lake before the rains began, but we had barely touched the 10 miles of trails the park promises and didn’t have the chance to see the Sarah Lincoln Woods Nature Preserve. But we’ve decided this state park is worth a repeat trip.
Indiana Bicentennial Hiking Challenge update: 188 miles to go.
