Why You Should Visit
A bit of Hoosier Appalachia, the Shooting Star Cliffs in Perry and Crawford Counties has a rugged landscape proves that Indiana is not the flat, agricultural land many people believe it to be. Cliffs, overhangs, sandstone rock shelters and hollows make up this stunning complex of natural areas. Dedicated as a State Nature Preserve in 1986, the Conservancy's Saalman Hollow Nature Preserve and three Special Areas designated by the Hoosier National Forest—Hemlock Cliffs, Pott's Creek and Oil Creek—make up this amazing area.
