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?

Jock Falls and Town Creek Falls
« on: July 06, 2018, 10:00:29 PM »

Any tips on where to park and how to hike into that gorge? Seems like all the directions I try end up at private residences... Is there a trail locals use?

Town Creek you park along the edge of the highway, climb over there guard rail and head into the woods. There is a faint deer path/trail.

Jock Falls you creek walk to, from Town Creek. Any other way is across private property.

that's what I was thinking was it was only via the creek.  OK when I go to try JF again I'll get em both.  Probably Fall.

The only problem is, when Town Creek Falls has perfect flow, Beaver Creek (which Jock Falls is on) will be brown and raging.  Will make it impossible to creek wade and will make Jock Falls just about disappear with the high flow.  Best thing to do is see them on different trips for perfect flow of each.

That's interesting! Thanks for the tip. So one in dry season, one in wet season?
