2 day hikes in the Midwestern US?
Question:I'm a fan of hiking and camping, but my girlfriend is not. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good, easy, scenic 2 day loop trail. My hope is that we can start around 7 am, hike in, get to a good stopping point around 5 or 6pm, stay the night, leave at 7am the next day, and finish the loop by late afternoon.
I think this would be a good way to introduce her to overnight trails without her getting in over her head.
I live in Evansville, IN and was hoping for a trail within 150 miles of E-ville.
Can start at the park campground and get sorted out. Then take off in the morning so you have plenty of time to enjoy the walk.
Has a nice lodge to if you want to cap it off with a soft bed and a delicious meal. Lots of good day trip trails also.

Here's a map of all the trails with the backcountry sites marked with black dots and named. http://www.nps.gov/maca/planyourvisit/up...
