    I got in on this thread a little late and don't want to change the location if it has already been established. I just want to mention the Wolf Creek Trail as an option. Where ever it happens, count me in.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't see why we should only do one hang this year. If there's two good trails, set up a different trip a little later in the year.

    K, I cannot find wolfcreek trail, even on the Reservoir web site. BUT, I'm not far from Brookville, & my mom is only about 8 miles from there.

    In addition to hiking, we could also do a 1/2 day canoe trip over at Morgans Canoe rental. Greg Morgan's place is pretty nice, so is his family. Showers are available for guests. IF we just want to do a canoe thing, there is a fairly large campsite on the river with ample trees for us, but it is almost in town with the inherent noises.

    I vote for there for the 2nd hang.

    OK, found it, a trailhead is just left of the dam. Cool.

    Sorry.

    Better do some checking on the Adena Trail at Brookville. I have a Brother-in-law who is the Recreational Manager for Brookville Lake and White Water State Park, and according to him it is not a back country trail. As in no camping. There is an improved campground adjancent to the trail up towards the causeway.

    That being said ........ one of the state hiking orginazations (not sure which one) was instrumental in laying it out and working with the state on establishing it. And they have it listed on their web page as a back country trail with camping allowed. And I have hiked the area and "stealth" camped in a couple of very nice spots. But if you do the entire loop, you do have to cross a causeway over Brookville Lake (approximately a mile long). And any group with backpacks is going to stand out like a sore thumb. Also, the description of "rolling terrain" may be a little misleading. There are sections that will rival anything found along the Knobstone Trail.

    Just my 2 cents.
    I'm so out of shape ......I passed gas yesterday and pulled a muscle!

    I did the trail on the west side of the lake starting at Fairfield Causeway in September. I passed 3 picnic tables and camp sites on my trek. I actually took my time and camped on the trail for 3 nights. The trail does come out and you cross the dam at the north end of Brookville. I have not done the section on the east side yet.

    So does anyone have any input on this earlier post of mine?
