CUMBERLAND FALLS STATE PARK, KY - October 22-23
The Club last visited this park in September 2007. Join us for two days of hiking in this beautiful Kentucky SP. Plan on arriving on the 21stand departing the 24th. The Park is famous for the magic of the Moonbow which is created by the mist of the falls on moonlit nights. The park is nicknamed the Niagara of the South. In addition to its namesake waterfall, the park has one of the most extensive trail systems in the Kentucky park system. The park is located off of I-75 near Corbin, KY, about 300 miles or 5 1/2 hours from Indy. The Park is holding up to 35 rooms in the Inn (each with 2 queen beds) for IHC members. The daily price for 2-person occupancy is $109.95+tax, and 2 more occupants may be added for $10/each. Please specify Group Code 2660 when reserving by phone or on-line. Modern housekeeping cabins are also available.To make your reservations or for more information go to the following website:https://parks.ky.gov/corbin/parks/resort/cumberland-falls-state-resort-parkor phone 606-528-4121.

ANNUAL WINTER BANQUET - Sunday, December 5
Mark your calendar for this major event. This year in addition to a happy hour, great food and recognizing our 2021 Achievement Award winners and new 25 year members, we will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Indianapolis Hiking Club, which occurs on January 23, 2022. Special 65th anniversary Club mementos will be given to all banquet attendees. We also anticipate having 65th anniversary logo merchandise available to purchase. Since this will be a catered event, reservations will be necessary. A reservation form for the Banquet will be sent out with the October schedule.

MCCORMICK'S CREEK STATE PARK WINTER WEEKEND - March 11-13, 2022
We plan return to Indiana's first state park McCormick's Creek for our fun mid-winter getaway, which was cancelled last year because of the pandemic. Mary Ann Layman will again coordinate this event.

25TH ANNUAL SMOKY MOUNTAINS LONG WEEKEND – April 19-21, 2022
Mark your calendar for the annual trip to Smoky Mountains National Park. We plan to make next year's hike a little special, startomg with scheduling the hike mid-week (Tues-Thur) to avoid the weekend crowds. April relly is one of the best times of the year to be in the Smokies. It is not too early to make your room reservations in Gatlinburg, TN. Some suggestions are Riverhouse at the Park (865-436-2070) and Bearskin Lodge on the River (865-430-4330). There will be broader range of morning and aftenoon moderate hikes on each day (with various leaders) and, of course, more challenging full day hikes led by Jim Goulding.

RESCHEDULED HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND - May 12-19, 2022
Twice cancelled due to the pandemic, third time is a charm (we hope). Mervyn Cohen is leading this trip and the trip is currently full. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please contact Mervyn by email at mecohen@iu.edu. Although the hotel and coach parts of the trip are full, any club member is welcome to join any hike, should they be visiting Scotland.
