“For Health and Happiness Hike”
"IT IS ONLY A LITTLE PLANET, BUT HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS..."
Sat. December 2nd We will hike at Knob State Forest near Bernheim. (no ticks this time of year!) Leader: Ida Butterworth. (new hike leader) Bus leaves at 1 P.M. You need to ride the bus. More info:
Ida, Yetta and I scouted it Friday. It is a one
way hike – 4+ miles, very rugged. The bus will drop hikers off at the KY
733 parking area. We’ll take the blue trail, right on yellow, left on
orange, and left on the road back to the parking lot with the question
mark on the map (link below). The bus will pick up hikers at the parking
area off Crooked Creek Rd. If you plan to drive, be sure to coordinate
transportation with another car. Or, if you want a good 8-10 miles, you
can pick up the yellow trail and get back to the blue trail. We talked
with Charles yesterday. He said the yellow trail goes into the woods a
good half mile from the parking area, near the third electrical pole. We
did not find that the day we scouted so no guarantees on how easy it is
to find. Charles, Roy & Jolene hiked this area awhile back and left a
“you can’t miss it” blue tarp at the intersection of the blue and yellow
trails. Charles said the distances are deceiving on the map – the hike
may be closer to 5 miles than 4.
