That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Awesome creek hike
« on: August 26, 2017, 10:00:40 AM »

This is not a secret place, in fact, it was mentioned here just a couple months ago. I saw other footprints, so this creek is definitely not a secret. I also saw a fire ring and rock "chairs" in one of the rockhouses. I would hate for this to become a "destination" that anyone can find with a little googling, so I am not mentioning the name of the creek. I'll happily provide details if you PM me.

I got to the trailhead about 10, the thermometer said 65 degrees. The forecast was for upper 70s and sunny, aka a perfect day for a creek hike.

First, I hiked the trail to a well known waterfall and had lunch


I then started at the bottom of the creek and worked my way back up to the top. The water was mostly ankle/calf deep, but in places it came up to my crotch. It was a little chilly and I was glad to be doing this in August vs. May.

















The good news is I had a great time and on top of it, I only saw one snake :)


I'm going to try to get back there before it gets too cold with my camera and tripod for some better photos.

As a person who has also done this hike in the exact same order, I can testify that it is amaz..er, I mean, it's terrible. Not worth your time, full of poisonous spiders and snakes and certain death. Stay away!  :P

Thanks for sharing. I do love that area, maybe even more than other areas that are heavily frequented.

I should have mentioned the 10 foot rattlesnakes and the only know alligators in KY, that would likely keep people away :)

Part of what makes this area so great is that is not popular and trashed. Hope it stays that way.
