Wednesday, April 22, 2015, Hike -- O&W Bridge, Devil's Den, and Eye-of-the-Needle

This is about a 9 mile hike from Leatherwood Ford to O&W Bridge, on to Devil's Den, and Eye-of-the-Needle, which may be the most unique feature in Big South Fork. Part of the trail is a muddy, eroded horse trail, but it is worth the trip. Depart from Cracker Barrel at 8:00 am CT. Carpool cost is $5.
