Description

Rock climbing is mostly illegal on public land in the state of Indiana. For legal climbing in the state, check out Muscatatuck Park. There is more than likely other climb-able rock, although it lies in privately-owned hands. 

The rock is mostly comprised of dolomite limestone.

As of 2020, climbing is legal in Hoosier National Forest. However, a certain portion of Hemlock Cliffs is off limits to climbing and rappelling. See Hemlock Cliffs map for details.
