The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

I still really want to know where the previous post is from, but I'm gonna go ahead and guess looking back inside Cloudsplitter from the cave/arch/opening whatever you call it for the latest pic.

You got it.  And I messaged you on the other pic.

You're up!

The characteristics reminded me of First Creek, which is why I guessed Mammoth Cave. All the moss covering, the coloration of the rock. Very familiar. However, I don't think it's in First Creek. Based on the scale I'd guess Bylew Creek area, but maybe Second Creek (haven't explored either but want to soon!).

None of those but I'd say you close enough, you up!  It is a shelter/cave along the river.  Actually has a span arch in the ceiling of it.  6-7' opening.  We called it Cathedral Shelter, no idea on an official name if any.  There are beech trees near it that are carved from the 1910-1940's which are cool to see as well.  I'd imagine, being along the river, it was used by natives for large dry shelter.

The neatest part is the conglomerate.  There is a line near the center of the shelter.  The ceiling is half just regular looking sandstone and the other half is packed with the white quartz pebble conglomerate.  The line goes through the arch too.

Not to mention Central KY holds one of my favorite things: the Knobs. I really just love the knobs. The drive through Bradfordsville is a yearly thing for me. I have gone in different seasons to get different effects. It's so unique.

Me too! I frequently day-dream about a long trail like the Sheltowee running across Central Kentucky through the knobs. How awesome would it be to start around Bernheim and be able to travel by foot to the Daniel Boone NF? I've seen master plans of similar trail networks across the state, but I'm doubtful I'll get to see it come to fruition in my lifetime. I read an article last week about access-issues with ranchers in Montana denying legal access to federal lands and I fear any attempt to build a long trail using easements would result in the same access-issues here. https://www.outsideonline.com/2263356/crazy-mountains

But I'll still dare to day-dream.


This is an example of what I have in mind. The orange is a Knobs Trail from Bernheim to near Mount Vernon. The green is a connector trail to Mammoth Cave.


Here's also a link to a news story about the master plan I referred to earlier:

Mammoth Cave? Trying to eliminate more counties. :)
Yes, it is within the park.  Any idea where in the park?  I assume it a pretty obscure place that we stumbled upon so might have to just give it to you based on that alone.

Give these instructions a try, let me know how they work out.
I tried to upload the XML source files but the BBS doesn't allow that. You will have to edit them yourself.

LOL thank you, I try.  ;)

This one is obscure, so just tell me about how I'd go looking for this, or what I was looking for when I came to this dead end.

I think I found your secret spot, and it's weird how it happened. I believe (likely wrong but my best guess since no one else tried) that this is out past the overlook along Star Gap Ridge due north of Andrews Arch. I think you were looking for Andrew's and found this spot instead.

So how do I come to guess this? Google Maps search for Slade yielded this photo:



It's not my photo, but the depressed area with the trees on the right-hand side looks similar to what you posted, with an edge of rock ringing an area of trees. So there, my best guess from a random photo stumbled upon in google maps. Does this WAG grant me the chance to know the real answer? ;)

The pine trees remind me of the Little Bloody Creek gorge but I don't recall a rock shelter or cave this size there.
Are we talking DBNF and/or Northern?
