John Muir Trail and O&W Bridge, Big South Fork

Jan 7, 2005: An attempt to connect the upper and lower sections of the JMT, which are not connected between the O&W Bridge and the Honey Creek Loop. Moonman here provided a map of a connector trail above Honey Creek and the network of horse trails, but unfortunately I failed to find the footpath. Although I didn't look too long, it appears that perhaps a small creek might provide easy access to the Loop, since overland is clogged with pine beetle damage. The upper JMT is considered an extension of Sheltowee Trace.
