Corydon Silt Loamsoil_sml.jpg (18604 bytes)

The Corydon series consists of well-drained, sloping to moderately steep soils on limestone hillsides. These soils are in the more dissected areas that cover a broad north-south belt across the center of the county.  They are common along Goose Creek, Harrods Creek, and on the Ohio River bluffs northeast of Louisville.   Their acreage is moderate.
