This will get you to the trail head and beyond on the map.
This will link you to an old trail guide, that will get you all the way to the pond. Some of the landmarks are even still there. It is a very easy trail to follow to Terrel Pond. Mostly all closed firetrail. You take a left turn at the Cemetary between #23 and #24, to head to the hang site.
Major thanks to Dead Reckon for the SAS Trail Guide links.
You can find the links to the rest of the Axsom and Sycamore branch trail and the rest of that guide in this thread. Page One. Dead's posts #7-11. *It IS a very old guide published in the 70's. Many landmarks have changed in 40 years!
Since I'm getting there early(ish), should I mark the trail?
The only "Issue" I had last year, well,,,,, would have if it wasn't marked, was at the cemetery & maybe at one of the trail jcts, but then it was 0300 (AM) :)
As I have it in Pink, (I think) I'll likely use pink ribbons. That is unless Mule gets there first. :lol:
Any one coming through fort Wayne friday? I have a buddy who is need of a ride and I'm not a good enough friend to wait for him.
On google earth I found these coordinances
Tower trailhead lat 39.034888, long 86.32100
Terrell Cemetery Lat 39.055064 long 86.319934
Thanks, Steve, I can find those also. I was wondering if anyone had the coordinates for the site of the hang.
I am not too stoked about going back to the same place we camped last year. It's not too late for someone to come up with alternates, because camping on a trail just to be close to a pond that you cannot see or hear is just not too sexy to me. Anyone else thinking that or am I just an idiot?
