Hoosier National Forest trail closing for power line work

You will see a trail closure if you are headed to Hoosier National Forest in Jackson County as crews work to maintain powerlines in the area.

The U.S. Forest Service says the work in Jackson County is being done by American Electric Power, which maintains power transmission lines for Indiana Michigan Electric Company. The company will be using a helicopter to spray herbicides in the right of way of those lines and the forest service says the closure is needed to ensure public safety in the work areas.

Hickory Ridge Trail 21 will be closed beginning at the intersection of North County Road 1200W.
