The out-and-back Browning Mountain hike starts at the Nebo Ridge north trailhead, west of the community of Story, and ends in mystery. Southern Indiana’s version of Stonehenge, Browning Mountain is remarkable for the Buick-size boulders that litter its west face. Legend says the stones are not native to the area and are protected by a ghost. Theories on how they came to rest on Browning Mountain range from glaciers to UFOs.
