Map - Morgan-Monroe & Yellowwood State Forests
Morgan-Monroe & Yellowwood State Forests map, produced by the Indiana Geological and Water Survey. Folding, two-sided topographic trail map printed on waterproof, tear-resistant paper.
The Uplands region of south-central Indiana provides ample opportunities to experience the remarkable topography and physiography of the Hoosier State. This area includes the forested hills of Morgan-Monroe and Yellowwood State Forests, Lake Lemon, and other smaller nature preserves, parks, and conservation lands that offer a variety of recreational activities such as camping, boating, and biking.
The underlying geology in this region includes the bedrock unit known as the Borden Group, which forms the steep hills and narrow valleys that will test even the most seasoned outdoor enthusiast. The northern portion of this area includes the flood plain of the White River, an area of massive glacial outwash during the last Ice Age that is covered with meander scars and abandoned channels from ancient and modern-day floods.
