Lots of rocky slope, bluff overlooks, and a couple creek crossings make for a fun hike.

Overview

A fun hike that explores the rolling terrain, creeks, bluff views, and limestone monoliths throughout the conservancy.
All caves at the Three Creeks Conservation Area are closed to help protect bats from White Nose Syndrome.

Description

From the parking area, the trail starts just to the north. If you go the other way you'll encounter a short trail to the creek that soon dead ends against private property.

Creek Crossing at 1/2 mile, again at about 2.5 miles in. If you go in the direction of the route shown, when you come back on the loop down to the creek, the trail is washed out somewhat by the creek, so you have to use some side trails to find your way back to the main crossing. blazes are "brown" hiking placards (they blend into the bark nicely) bring a map.


Looks like this hike could use some love! If you know it, add some details to the description.

Not well marked. Needed the app to ensure staying on route. Good hike with a few nice hills.
