    I really liked the creek shots Mule! Thanks for the hiking companionship - Ryan and Steve. A great "indian" fire was made by Steve, while we gathered wood. Ryan has quite a knack for finding the best wood and had a very positive attitude! Good to have met him and hope to walk a trail again soon with him. Mule's bush whacking leadership skills let us to a nice spot. The deer poop never smelled, but Mule thought it tasted a little funny. The sycamore trail is mostly a nice "true" hiking trail instead of the horse trail or logging road. I like the longer method we took leaving, but that's because I'm not a superior bush whacker yet (and would be my way of going to the valley for a hang). Thanks again guys.
    I like big hammocks - I cannot like.

    Personally,,I think Cresent Valley will be a awesome spot. You have all the surrounding trees and woods around the open valley,,great spot for a fire as big as you want, without burning the woods down,,looks like lots of firewood to be had from video and pics also. Ample water definitely during the spring, however in the middle of summer those creeks are totally dry till you go about mile down it. And even then, will work its way underground till you get to the road way way east. Easy hike, very little so called bush wacking and that will make it totally interesting. And its a new spot for you to enjoy. Parking problems are solved as well as you also have parking across the road from Fire Tower. Hope I can, and will definitely try and make this no matter where you have it.

    Thanks, Acer, That's the way to make some comments. I hope everyone likes the place. The greenbriars going in are a real plus, without which the spot would be found by others and, well, we have this one to ourselves.

    Can you park on one side of the road if the Firetower parking lot fills up? The lot across the road from parking is at the Grubb Ridge pulloff I am thinking of not the firetower parking lot???

    There is no lot on the other side of the road, but you can park on both diodes of the parking lot and maybe some on ONE side of the road, too.
