The Indian Hill

Where the River Bends... Yesterday I parked my car at the Covered Bridge, walked along Furnace Run, cut across an old farm field(the Pasture Field), hiked up and along the Indian Hill, down the other side, along the railroad tracks past Szalay's, and through the woods behind the Big Field back to my car. A great hike indeed.

My Favorite Path The Indian Hill was labeled on old maps as "Szalay's Indian Site" but it is now owned by the National Park. The hill juts out from Oak Hill Road into the Valley - it then narrows for a while(above photo) before broadening out at the end. With Furnace Run on one side and the remnants of a creek bed on the other you can see why it would have been an important strategic location. Selfie Selfie on the Hill - Szalay's in the background.
