Daniel Boone National Forest
McCreary County

Myself and good friend Chris Morris took a three day weekend running around the McCreary, Whitley and Laural Counties of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Kentucky. Our first stop of the trip was along a creek that is a stones throw away from the Tennessee and Kentucky border. Named Rock Creek, the remote forest road that follows it is a gorgeous stretch as it meanders along and above the creek through a hemlock forest. Our goal was to find three falls that Chris found out about on a kayaking website, and for the most part the falls were an easy roadside find, at least two of them were, the third completely eluded us. Named El Classico Falls by the kayakers, this 5 foot or so tall cascade paints a beautiful scene looking upstream, and to be honest I really love the boulder against the sandstone shelf in the creek. Kentucky at it's best for sure.
