My original plan was to park at Lick Hollow Picnic area for a two day trip, out and back to the Quebec Run Wilderness Area. But when I found out that they don't allow overnight parking at Lick Hollow (and that it doesn't open until Memorial Day), I decided to start at Quebec Run and hike north instead of south. I learned, however, that there is no camping allowed at the Pine Knob overlook area, so I had to make do elsewhere. There is a small parking area on Pine Knob Road where the trail leaves the road to head toward Redstone Creek. Redstone Creek appears to be a reliable source of water year-round (always a good idea to treat water). There is a large clearing suitable for group camping (could easily hold a half dozen tents) a bit north of the power line cut near Long Run. The trail is very well blazed, but not well-worn. The toughest elevation change is the approach to Redstone Creek coming from the south.
