Pine Knob County Park

Indiana Natural Areas: Lagrange County


Boardwalk along Meteer Lake

Boardwalk along Meteer Lake

Pine Knob is a Lagrange County property notable for restored savanna, wetlands, and a large 3-D archery course. The latter lies mostly along the northeastern portion of the trail network; occasionally large and often incongruous targets appear just off-trail to either side as you walk along. I prefer the southwestern loop, which skirts the western edge of gorgeous Meteer Lake and traverses an extensive wetland area toward the west. Boardwalks allow close inspection of the aquatic plants and animals that live here. Drier areas host a respectable array of spring wildflowers, while bird life includes yellow warbler, common yellowthroat, warbling vireo, and pileated woodpecker.
