Mar 20, 2021Back on the Piney Creek Trail

Back on the Piney Creek Trail – it’s a 20′-30′ drop to the creek. I was looking for good camping spots. The best are probably at the very start of the Piney Creek Trail. The trail is overgrown and difficult to follow in many places. Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

It doesn’t look like it, but it is a 20′-30′ drop to the creek. I was looking for good camping spots. The best sites are probably at the very start of the Piney Creek Trail, but I wasn’t too keen on camping there because the trail overlooked them. I do like my privacy when I’m out in the wilderness. Not that anyone was likely to come past.

Carrying on down the trail, it became increasingly overgrown and difficult to follow. I found this spring which isn’t marked on the maps, which is always a good thing to find. The further I went, the narrower the hollow became, the steeper the sides were, and more bush-whacking was required. I was zigzagging from side to side of the hollow, looking for a nice spot to stop. Good and even bad campsites were in short supply, and I kept on heading down the trail. I’d find somewhere to stop eventually.

Spring – it’s always good to know where a spring can be found. Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
