Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

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.

Red Byrd Arch
« on: October 28, 2017, 03:10:54 PM »

I found Red Byrd Arch last weekend via the Douglas trail and crossing the Red at the "confluence".   Once I crossed the Red, I couldn't find any trail and I just made my way following animal trails close to the Red, and bushwhacking thru Rhodos following GPS coordinates to Red Byrd Arch.

It's was a beautiful day hike and well worth it.

My questions:  Did I miss a more traveled trail once I crossed the Red, maybe higher up?  Is the alternate route from the top any easier?

The trail off the old road bed is easy to miss (dead fall by the road bed).  Kind of rhodo-ey on the way down (this turn is also easy pass by cuz of the braiding through the rhodo).  Don't know if it's easier but I believe it's shorter.
The cliff lines whisper "I have secrets to share".  But sometimes they lie!! :D
