I did the South Kelsey Trail. It's very steep in the beginning with a thin trail (don't trip), then you get to a nice cabin at Buck Creek where there is a great swimming spot next to a waterfall! Keep going and get to Elkhorn where thier are a bunch of mosquitos!! 1 mile past that is 8-mile creek which also offers a great swimming spot! This hike is full of lovely views, and magical trails.

Good trail. Lots of great views. We encountered a rattlesnake. Added a little extra fun to our hike.

Nice trail I did the 1st time 3 years ago. Back then it had a nice info board about the history of the trail. It's gone and likely someone took it home with them. A very enjoyable trail in the middle of nowhere. As you will see in the pics it was hot... Grouped this with 3 others and had a great day with the dog.
