Turkey Run State Park The Punch Bowl Poster
Located in the plains of Central Indiana, Turkey Run State Park is commonly boasted as the Midwest's best kept secret by outdoor enthusiasts. Its rugged hiking trails bisect stark gorges carved out by glacial meltwater in one of the few areas of the state to contain old growth stands of virgin forest. Nestled within the park is the 1,609 acres of Rocky Hollow-Falls Canyon Nature Preserve. It comes as a surprise to many that this little known parks trail system is regularly voted as having the Best Hiking Trails in the state year after year. Exploring the streams, waterfalls, and gulches of this scenic landscape is unlike any other experience within the Hoosier State. The Punch Bowl Waterfall is a perfect example of a “pothole” that was scoured out by glacial erratics, or rock debris, caught in a swirling backwash. In simpler terms, think of how the water swirls in your toilet when you flush it. Now throw in a handful of large chunks of sharp rock and watch it carve out a circular shaped hole in the ground.
