Campsite #3 – Hesse Creek

Beard Cane Trail – about 3.7 miles from the intersection with Cooper Road Trail, 0.6 miles from the intersection with Ace Gap Trail.

Capacity: 8

Rating: 7

Water: Available from Hesse Creek.

Campsite #3 is very nice site directly off the creek.  The is one fire ring and one set of bear cables.  The site is just off the trail and highly visible but very little impact as evidenced from an abundance of dead and down wood in the vicinity.  Despite being close to the trail, the site is still very lovely as it is situated on the creek.
