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?

Hanson's Point Trail Conditions
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:50:31 PM »

How is the trail out to Hanson's Point now?  I haven't been in a few years and it was really overgrown in places due to new growth from the fire.

It is overgrown, but passable.  It may not be passable with another couple of years growth, unless users maintain the trail.

I was just there.  Definitely overgrown, but nothing that prevents the trail from being passable or easy to follow.  There are a lot more downed trees now that there were, but they are all fairly easy to step over and don't disguise the trail at all.  If anything, the most difficult part is actually identifying the entrance to the trail on the return, from the large camp spot.  The overgrowth disguises it just enough that someone not comfortable being off trail could get turned around.  Somebody should probably just flag that tree before a solo hiker panics and gets lost.

The first time I went out to Hanson's last winter the whole trail was flagged. My return trip I had no such luck. The return is a bit tricky if you don't remember which way you approached from. I know I was doing it solo and had poke around a little bit before I had my AH-HA moment.

When I was there last March what I found most difficult with overgrowth were the side trails to views on the left before reaching Hanson's Point.
