Otter Creek, WV weekend

Gonna hit the Otter Creek Wilderness over the weekend. Moore Run Trail to campsite; then explore. If you love stream side hikes, then Otter Creek is your place! This area takes some care however. Otter Creek can rise quite quickly if the rain starts and can become very dangerous very quickly. So head up, if the storms set in, you might wanna start your plan B, C, and D thinking.

I rate Otter Creek as the number stream-side hike in WV. It has plenty of drama!
I rate Seneca Creek as number two. It has nice waterfalls and you are always close to the action.
I rate Red Creek as number three. Has drama, has water falls, even has a water slide, but you are too far from the action.

I am doing this hike with my friend Rumble Seat; not her real name :) and her two dogs. We should have a great time! This will be her boy's first backpack trip. Her girl is an experienced hiker dog.
