Tunnel Hill State Trail questions
I have to make a trip down to the southwest tip of Indiana next week, and saw on a trail map that the Tunnel Hill trail isn't all that far from where I'll be (E'ville). So I'm thinking about taking my bike along, spend the night in E'ville and then drive over to Harrisburg in the morning to do some riding before heading home. From the pictures I've seen online, it looks like a very nice trail (especially the tunnel itself), but I do have a couple of questions for anyone who has ridden it....
Is it flat or hilly? Can't really tell by the pictures. Up here in northern Indiana, I pretty much stick to flat land (but then again, that's pretty much all we have in northwest IN LOL), so I'd like to be prepared ahead of times if the trail is somewhat up and down.
Another question is, is it paved all the way from Harrisburg to Vienna? The traillink.com website says it's concrete and crushed stone, but doesn't give much information about the areas that are stone. It does say that the "route in Harrisburg becomes a mix of crushed stone and concrete, ending at the trailhead on the north side of town." Is that the only stretch of crushed stone I'd have to worry about?
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
