Daniel Boone National Forest: Rockcastle Narrows & Bark Camp Creek Trails

With just over a week to go until our big trip for the summer in Colorado, Noelle, Parker,and I headed south to the London area (Kentucky, not England) for some hiking and camping in the Daniel Boone National Forest. We drove south on I-75 yesterday morning and set up camp at the Bee Rock Campground. I would have to say it's my second favorite campground in Kentucky after the excellent (and free) Great Meadows site. From there we hiked a 4.5 mile loop to the Rockcastle River Narrows.

That evening Eric hiked up to the Bee Rock overlook for a pre-sunset view.
Today, we headed further south and hiked along Bark Camp Creek,
Bark Camp Cascades
an enjoyable place for a walk in the shade of tall sandstone cliffs.
