The creek crossing is PARTICULARLY slippery when the water is up. Be careful. And don't have your smartphone in your pocket.

How far of a hike is this from the bridge? And where is the best place to cross the creek, I'm tryin to get to the River Wall, but the creek would have swept my azz away today. It may just be a bad time for this area due to snow melt, rain, and run-off.
