the family took a trip to Turkey Run State Park near Marshall, Indiana. It is a real gem of the midwest and should not be missed.
it is also perfect hiking with kids. Tons of low key adventure.
I used treking poles for every hike to take a load off my knee. The surgeon was not hyped about me taking a hiking trip.
there is always danger to taking your life into your own hands. The old growth forest and sandstone canyons were gentle on my knee..especially w the poles.
