    IN > Panther Creek – Hoosier NF > 5/4-5/5

    I’m planning to head down to HNF the first weekend of May, and don’t currently have anyone to go with so I figured I’d open up an invite to anyone around here that wanted to join me. I’ve been speaking to Mule as I was looking for a spot to go, and I believe he may already be joining me.

    Panther Creek is at the end of the Tecumseh Trail, just inside of HNF. Mule said there is parking within 3 miles of the site off of Crooked Creek Road. My plans are to get down to the area early find the site, and then head out on a day hike up the Tecumseh Trail to check it out.

    Again, anyone is welcome to join. I’m just doing this trip is just to kick off the dust from the winter and to get away from my office for a weekend.

    I am emailing you a crude map. Just drive South on Crooked Creek Lake road past the lake about .6 to 1.0 miles. There is a parking lot there. Head up the trail, a long climb at first and follow the white blazes over Miller Ridge and down into Panther branch. You can walk the creek from there right up Panther Branch. It's gorgeous in there.
    The present moment is eternal. I would rather be Here, Now.

    And yes, for those looking at the dates listed in the title and thinking, "does he actually mean 5/4-5/5".....you would be correct. I have a PM into the mods to correct it.

    As I told Breck in an email, you could start your hike at Crooked Creek Lake parking lot and hike up the Elevator, we call it, to Miller Ridge and then on over into panther creek. It's a little farther but you get to see more or the country that way.

    Put me down for a Yes on your list. I would rather Breck be the leader of the hike just in case I get tied up or something, but I plan on a good time.
