rated easy to moderate— Hike Bucks Run and Locust Spring Run Trails in the Laurel Fork Special Management Area. These trails have been up-graded in the past two years. This 6-mile loop trail follows old railroad grades along two mountain streams with mini waterfalls and cascades; el-evation changes about 700 feet. Most of the trail is easy with a few small creek crossings, some short rocky areas of the trail, and one short switchback elevation drop on part of the trail.
Hike is okay for beginners, limit: 10 hikers. We will have two leaders, Point and Sweep, because people will want to stop at various places to take pic-tures, etc. Leader has knowledge of the area.
Sturdy footwear suggested. Participants should bring rain gear, lunch and water.
Conservation Topic: Watershed area.
Meet at 10 AM at the Locust Springs Picnic Area off Rt. 28 at Pocahontas/Pendleton County lines. Please pre-register with leader.
