This is a worthy ride. Check out Rose Island down…

Written Directions

The route can either start or stop in Salem, IN or Charlestown, IN. The route covers IN Highway 160 that stretches from Salem, IN to Charlestown, IN.


This route combines the many different scenic views of southern Indiana ranging from creeks, hills, trees, an old castle looking church, passing through Clark State Forestry. The route includes many different left and right curves.

Drive Enjoyment

The road has a lot of sweeping and twisting curves with several flat stretches and hills over its entire 28.4 miles. The pavement was done in chip and seal about 5 years ago and is still in good condition.

Tourism Opportunities

Salem has a variety of restaurants along with the John Haye Museum, Salem Speedway, and a couple Amish shops. Along the route, you will pass through South Boston which has an old General Store. You will also pass through Clark State Forestry which has the Knobstone Trail crossing the highway. There are plenty of places in the forestry to stop and see nature. Charlestown is as well has several places to eat.

This is a worthy ride. Check out Rose Island down at the river. It's an abandon amusement park.
