Additional info:

  • Updated as of 7/13/2016:  Driving directions to Dickey Creek TH and schedule for shooting have been updated in group route summaries (PDF), Google Earth Files, and GPX files:
    • Group route summaries (PDF): includes itineraries for all groups (driving directions and hiking) and your scheduled shooting time.  Do not be late for shooting.  We recommend that every adult leader print out a copy of his group’s itinerary and pack it with him.  We will be providing all rangers with both group route itineraries and a professional FS map on Monday morning.
