The trailhead is located just south of Indian Boundary in the Citico Creek Wilderness area. The trail initially traverses a slope above Citico creek and winds down to connect to and old roadbed which will lead to the intersection of the North and South forks of Citico Creek. We will follow the roadbed which will takes us along the South Fork. In order to avoid two stream crossing we will traverse a slope for approximately 0.3 miles and re-join the creek at a camp site where we will stop for lunch prior to the return trip.

 

Hiking boots and hiking stick(s) are recommended as well as insect repellent. Bring water and a trail lunch.

 

Driving Directions: To be provided the morning of the hikes.

 

Car-pooling is recommended and will be set up the morning of the hike. Passengers are asked to contribute $5 to the driver to help cover gas etc.
