Trail Overview

Trail 5 is located in Redbird State Recreational Area (located in Linton, IN), which is a 1.5-hour drive from Indianapolis, IN. Redbird State Recreational Area is a state-owned and maintained offroad park. Trail 5 is the easiest of the 4 Badge of Honors located at Redbird SRA and is mildly flat with slight elevation changes. There is a picnic area on the trail where you can take in the views of nature and a small pond. When the trails at Redbird are wet, the trail increase in difficulty rating to a 4-5. If you choose some optional challenges, there are a few challenging hills and ravines next to this trail with deep mud holes that will swallow 35" tires, so be careful. Trail 5 is 0.7 miles long which will take you less than 15 minutes to complete. The trail does not have cell service, so make sure to download offline maps and check into Jeep Badge of Honor before or after you complete the trail.


The trail is easily done by a stock 4wd vehicle. When the ground is wet, the difficulty will increase to a 4-5, and becomes very slippery. If the ground is slippery, it will be hard to get to this trail but the trail itself can be completed fairly easily.
