McVey Memorial Forest

McVey Memorial Forest is a 249 acre forest located in Randolph County. Edna McVey established this nature park in her will so that generations to come would enjoy it. McVey Memorial Forest is a wonderful example of upland forest, river bottom, prairie, and wetlands, as well as a 30 year restoration project. Bush Creek meanders through the woods to the Mississinewa River. The property’s trails traverse the hardwood forest over bridges and varied terrain. The McVey Memorial Forest is also adjacent to hundreds of acres of DNR forest; making this area one of the largest wildlife corridors in East Central Indiana.

*TRAIL CLOSED* The red trail is closed for maintenance and infrastructure improvement. The picnic shelter and pond can still be enjoyed. The North and South parking lots and trailheads on W 700 N and W 750 N are open.
