Really missed being out yesterday. Rest is important, though. I hope all of you are having a good spring!

Station Camp Creek
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:55:34 AM »

I took advantage of the road closures in the gorge and hiked to Rock Bridge, Creation Falls, Pooch Falls and Turtle Back Arch. It had been a couple years since I had been to Turtle Back Arch and I had never bothered to climb down below Pooch Falls. I tried to find the Moonshiners Cave, but was not successful. After poking around Swift Camp Creek, I decided that I am going to return for some creek walking once the water warms up a bit. Once again, I felt like I had the gorge to myself.

Looks like a great trip.  That's one of my favorite loops at the RRG.  Very underrated.

I clicked on this thinking it was about Station Camp Creek in the Big South Fork, but was pleasantly surprised to see some photos and the trip report about Swift Camp Creek. Glad to see you were able to take advantage of the road closures and had the place to yourself!

I always mix up Station Camp and Swift Camp. I even "reminded" myself not to screw up and I still did :)

I love that part of the gorge, but in the summer time it seems to be swimming with people. Nice to have it to myself
