    Fine with me, Mule.

    This is a re-post from last year for those who need maps, directions, and GPS coodinates.

This is basically a repost from last year's hang--hope it helps someone. This will get you to Brown Hollow and from there to Browning Hill. If the itinerary changes, you're on your own.

    I attached two topos with the trails marked in red. I made a mistake the first time I traced the trail (not having been there) and that line is marked with "x's." From the North Trailhead, go to waypoint #4, turn left and follow the trail down to the campsite (marked "C#1" on map) at Brown Hollow. The next morning, re-trace trail back to waypoint #4, turn left, and follow the trail through waypoints 5, 6, and 7. The other red trail heading East, then South from waypoint #5 is the Nebo Ridge Trail heading to the South trailhead.

    Anyway, here are the coordinates:

    1: N39 04.757' W086 14.920' (North Trailhead)

    2: N39 04.375' W086 14.708' (Top of Wilkerson Hill)

    3: N39 04.202' W086 14.665' (Stay on trail to left)

    4: N39 04.204' W086 14.488' (Brown Hollow is down trail to left or stay to right to go to Browning Hill)

    C#1: N39 04.099' W086 13.491' (Brown Hollow Campsite--this is NOT located off a little spur trail to the East as I drew on the map, but about the same distance to the West on the trail shown, in the next draw west of that spur. However, there were some nice campsites located on that spur.)

    Next morning, re-trace steps up hill to waypoint #4, then go to #5:

    5: N39 03.801' W086 14.600' (Junction of Combs Road--CROSS ROAD through small campsite and follow small trail to rear on the right. Stay away from small trail leading back to Combs Road on left side of campsite. Junction with Nebo Trail South-bound is a few hundred yards before arriving at Combs Road from the North.)

    6: N39 03.726' W086 15.342' (Just before junction with another trail heading back to left. Stay to right--not a big deal on way to Browning Hill but you can miss this intersection (or get mighty confused) on way back.

    7: N39 03.808' W086 15.988' (Fire pit in center of the stonehenge on Browning Hill--You Made It!)

    Other coordinates for 2 other trailheads:

    Berry Ridge Trailhead (about a mile from Brown Hollow campsite, coordinates are close, but may not be exact, and there is not a marked trailhead): N39 03.740' W086 13.002.

    South Nebo Ridge Trailhead (about a 6-7 mile hike to Brown Hollow, passes right by Berry Ridge Trailhead): N39 01.106' W086 14.533'

    OK, that should get you there! The trails are clear but unmarked (though I bet Mule's caution tape is still there), so you have to pay attention and it would be best to stick with someone familiar with the area.

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver

    I had a nice little visit to the hollow last night. Best night I've had in a long time. I figured that since I can't be there next month I'd leave you all a little present. I tore apart, dug out, and rebuilt the fire ring. Hope no one messes it up too badly before you all get to try it out. I can't post pics at the moment. . .I probably won't get 'em up 'till Monday or Tuesday.

    It's not the boulders that throw us off balance, it's the pebbles beneath our feet

    Nebo Ridge is a completely different area, not in the Deam Wilderness, but not far away.

    Crescent valley option

    OK, Trout, Evileotter and I went in search of Crescent Valley yesterday. We found it. I am going to try to attach a video so you can all see it and help me decide if you'd rather have the HH here this year. Parking is excellent. Park at the Tower on Tower Ridge Road, take the Sycamore Trail loop off the main trail that heads to Terrell Cemetery, then bushwhack about 10 or 15 minutes through some Greenbriars and you are there. Hiking possibilities are many because you are camped in the center of the Sycamore Branch trail which goes by the Cemetary and Terrell Pond and connects with the Axiom Branch Trail too. I may put this on another thread so we can do a poll to see what you think.
    Here is the video:

    Please see the video and let me know if you even want to consider it as a good place for the HH this year, if it is to some of you I will make a new thread named Choose Location for Hoosier Hang and put a poll in the thread.

    Take the poll here: https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ad.php?t=69896
