Ride, Drive or Hike Through Hendricks County

Lose yourself in the fun - on foot, horseback or driving

Narrowing down all of the festivals, activities and other fall attractions in Hendricks County can prove to be a difficult task because of the sheer number of amazing things to see and do.

A good starting point is Beasley’s Apple Orchard, a must-see autumn institution featured in Indianapolis Monthly magazine as one of “50 Things Every Hoosier Must Do!”

Hendricks County boasts plenty of other fun fall festivals including the Quaker Day Festival Sept. 23 in Plainfield which celebrates that community’s heritage with a parade, carnival rides and more.

Another popular year-round Hendricks County attraction will have a fall twist this year. The self-directed, self-guided  Rural Routes to Main Street Cultural Trail driving tour takes visitors along the back roads of Hendricks County to meet local artisans and their shops and studios. 

Into horseback riding? A good place to start is Natural Valley Ranch in Brownsburg, which is the perfect spot for both novice and experienced riders.

If you want to view some beautiful fall color, McCloud Nature Park in North Salem is just far enough off the beaten path to still have that untouched natural beauty while being close enough to all the amenities any visitor would need.
