Great hike that I had all to myself after the two creeks join. I took East Clear Creek down stream aways and walked in the creek for a long time. Crawdads, hell, they are small lobsters! I have never seen so many, they are every where. After looking at my GPS I figured I could make this a loop hike. I did, but it was straight up and hard as heck. All in all a great day in the woods.
