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?

Here's a little more help in the form of more pictures! For those who worry about over-sharing, I'm not. I am pretty sure we were the only people to have hiked this trail in months (at least on their own two feet). In fact, a few more people might actually help it. It doesn't have any hidden treasures or awesome destinations, but the general scenery was unspoiled and the stream splendid.

Same spot, different view.


And another view further down the trail:


One last hint picture, shows the typical conditions on this trail:


You guys now have four pictures and some process of elimination. Good luck!

Another great guess, but still not the one.

Another hint. This trail is featured in the book we all know so well. Not much of a destination on its own but can be used to access bigger and better things. And its not all creek bed, you have to navigate some overgrown fields and a terribly steep hill climb. The only travelers on this path are usually of the four-legged and two headed variety.

Two-headed travelers? Not sure if I want to be on this trail, sounds like a trail fit for the upside down.

How about Powdermill Trail/Branch going up to Blackburn and Hatton Ridge.

LOL! I was trying to be punny. I guess I should have said six legs but only four that touch the ground. Excellent guess but still not right. Closest yet.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Its way out there. If solitude is what you crave youll find it and more. Just be ready to push through dense over grown fields, navigate muddy sections created from the horses (aka the four-legged and two-headed creatures), and be ready for the longest climb in the whole gorge. I would say it was 500 from creek to Ridge. Worth the struggle.
