Yeah, they are a little pricey, but I've heard good things about them so I figured I'd investigate a bit. I'll let you know what I find out.

Yes, thanks Mike, I see now. Jerry's Run / 441. Didn't plan to include this one originally but will try to now!

Having not been there yet, I was thinking check out the knob top for camping. I see Hiner Spring on the map now and appreciate the heads-up Christian. How hard is it to find? It looks to be in the general vicinity of the intersection of 440 and 446, but I know how easy it can be for things to hide in the forest.

Really? What happened to the DRZ400s you and your dad had?

Hey Denis. I know you want some seat time but you could probably pick Errorcooled brain for any other details. I think JDRocks has one also right?

The Knob is cool to check out, but not all that great for camping. At one time there was an observation tower there, and the knob was cleared of vegetation. However, that was like 60 years ago and the tower is in pieces on its side and the place is all grown up with no real view. But it's cool to see the old tower and the remains of the little cabin that was below it. It's a very short hike off of the main trail.

Hiner Spring itself is somewhat easy to find, there's a box-like structure in the ground. But the whole area from the Hardscrabble Knob trail intersection down to Hiner Spring is great camping..

Aweseome, Christian, thanks. That sounds like a potentially cool restoration project. Where's Terry?

If that was you outside about an hour ago, that was me tooting at you.
