Big South Fork (Yahoo Falls area)

  • to

  • No location was chosen

  • We'll hike in the Yahoo Falls area.  There's a 9-10 mile loop there with some side trip options to get us a few more miles.   Depart Friday afternoon and head to Alum Ford on Kentucky side...(we'll grag a QUICK bite for dinner on the way)  Friday night camp at Alum Ford (primitive site near boat launch).   We'll find a site on-trail Saturday night... ultimately returning to Alum Ford Sunday.  DISCLAIMER.. It looks like it will be COLD Saturday night with possibility or some kind of precipitation (rain or whatever) Friday and Saturday... Sunday looking Sunny (at this time).. If the weather concerns you, call me but you MUST BE PREPARED.  Also, keep in mind, hunting is permitted in the BSF, so some kind of blaze is suggested.. (orange vest/shirt, orange pack cover, bandana ... whatever)  Kimber[masked]-2202. Only 'yes' RSVP's please.  I'll advise on meeting place, but will be in the airport area.

    Hey everyone.. just wanted to advise I am considering cancelling this trip due to weather.. I've been watching things and at this time 80% chance of rain Friday night and less chance -- 30% on Saturday - which is good - but what concerns me is the projected temperature Saturday night... possible 18 degrees F .. with 10 mph wind thats between 6-7 degrees wind chill. and I am just not sure the dampness that will surely still be there plus the temperature makes for an enjoyable much less safe combination. I'll probably take a look at things tomorrow, but just wanted to keep you posted on what I am thinking. Kimber

    kimber - I'm interested. Wouldn't be able to leave until afternoon on Friday. Hopefully could get away a little early 3pm? I would be interested in exploring areas of BSF that I haven't already seen (northern area)?

      not sure you got my reply.. but that would be fine.. I'll look at map.. would prefer a "loop" or best we could do to avoid car drop if possible. Let me know if you had any speceific trails in mind.. Leaving at 3:00 would be fine.
