This beautiful out-and-back hike closely follows Big Creek, past two small waterfalls (Midnight Hole; Mouse Creek) and over a dozen smaller creeks on the way past Campsite #37 to #36 for lunch. Return the same way (11.6 miles total, or 10.6 miles if hiking just to #37, and ~1,350 ft. climb, rated Moderate). For carpooling, meet at Cracker Barrel at I-40 Exit 398 (southeast corner of parking lot) at 7:30 am (drive 116 miles @ 10 cents = $11.60), or at Big Creek Picnic parking (east end), ready to hike at 8:45 am. The leader will meet the group at the trailhead, not the carpooling site.

Leader: Eric Sundstrom

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
