Trail shared by Leslie Kehmeier

Beautiful scenery with multiple creek crossings.

Description

This section starts at Forest Service Road 3085 and runs parallel to the road that accesses S-Tree Campground. From there, the route continues through a particularly beautiful section, following Forest Service Road 437 along Raccoon Creek and Horse Lick Creek.

There are several creek crossings which are reinforced with concrete planks. During periods of heavy rain, these crossings may flood and become dangerous to cross.

This section ends where Forest Service Road 455 fords Horse Lick Creek at Wolf Pen Branch.
