Written Directions

Head south on SR 135. Turn right at the Grocery store on the corner of SR 45 and 135. Follow SR 45 west for 15 miles to New Unionville where you will see a water tower. At this point, turn right on to Bethel Ln. Follow this for 3 miles to Old SR 37. Turn right for 9 miles to the entrance of Morgan-Monroe Forest (on your right). Turn right on Forest Rd and follow through the park to where the road ends at a yellow arrow pointing right. Follow road to the right for about 1/4 mile to Hinson/Gose Creek Rd. Turn Left and follow this until the road T's into Jordan Rd. Turn Left on Jordan Rd. and follow for approx 3 1/2 miles until you come out onto SR 37. Turn right and go 1 mile to SR252 where you will turn right and follow for 9 miles back into Morgantown. Enjoy the trip!

Scenery

The perfect route for weekend bikers coming down to visit Brown County from Indy. The ride starts in Morgantown IN and completes a loop which brings you right back to where you started. This route will take you through rolling countryside with plenty of twisting roads and tranquil wooded areas in the Morgan-Monroe State Forest. Awesome scenery especially in the fall.

Drive Enjoyment

The roads are in excellent condition with the exception of some patches that run through the Morgan-Monroe Forest where there is some loose gravel.

Tourism Opportunities

A nice little hometown gas/convenience store in New Unionville is a good resting spot if you need to gas up or grab a drink.

My wife and I rode this loop today. We truly enjoyed the ride. Roads were in good condition and not much traffic. Nice scenery. We did have some deer run in front of us, so be careful.

Great run , be careful on IN 45 it gets really twisty around Yellow-wood state forest and with no shoulders to speak of cars have a tendency to throw gravel from the side to the middle of the lane making it easy to loose traction in the turns when you don't expect it.

Good ride other than goose creek road. Will not recommend a touring bike on that road. No payment, just loose gravel and big holes
