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.
Suggestions?

Red October
« on: September 27, 2018, 05:27:44 PM »

Looks like the weather is starting to cooperate. Gorge season is upon us. I can't wait to get down there and disappear into clifty wilderness for a few days. I am in dire need of a re-set. Death in the family, changed my job this week, lots of stress thats needs released. Anyways,  not a whole lot of activity here lately. Thought I'd see if anyone else had itchy feet... Need some hemlocks in my life asap.... Happy trails folks!

Speaking of good weather and clifty, I plan on being there this weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of good access points to the eastern ridge of Swift Camp Creek from the Wildcat Trail junction or thereabouts? Can't decide if I want attempt to find Red Byrd Arch or try some fishing in the creek.

I once read something about the 'calabaloose'. Which is an old logging town or something abandoned and taken back by the earth. It is across swift camp creek up from rock bridge aways. A pretty good bushwhack it said, I've never been. I can't seem to find the article or blog I think is what it was.

Anyone else have insight on this?

Vaguely remember something about a lost camp out that-a-way.

The cliff lines whisper "I have secrets to share".  But sometimes they lie!! :D
