I love the green trail that leads to the Indian Mound. The trail is maintained year round and well lit at night.

It's easy to drive right by the Indian Mound and not even notice it. But if you're visiting the area, you may find this bit of history worth stopping for.

If you have ever been to an actual indian mound, say like in Cahokia, IL then you will be VERY disappointed in this "mound". Not much there but a sign and a little bump maybe 5 feet high in the Shoney's parking lot. Nothing to...More
