For two nights I would park at First Creek trailhead and stay the night at Second Creek campsite. It is located at the confluence of Second Creek and Nolin River. Hike up the bluff to the Temple Hill Trailhead and down the ridge on the McCoy Hollow Trail and stay at the McCoy Hollow site night two. Then you hike back to the First Creek Trailhead on the McCoy Hollow Trail.
That will be about 13 miles.
For one night I would go from Temple Hill trailhead and hike down to one of the First Creek sites or depending upon how far you want to go stay the night at Second creek campsite.
