Camping Between Bell and JSI

Postby stlhiker » Thu Dec 22, 2011 8:19 pm

I'll be backpacking from Highway A to the Scour Trailhead next week and had a question about where to camp. We're doing the trip in 3 days and 2 nights. Right now, I'm planning on going north to south, but wanted some advice on where to camp. I'm thinking of spending the first night somewhere in the Padfield Branch valley. Is there anywhere in particular that's a nice spot near the creek?

I wasn't so sure about the second night. Are there any good campsites between Padfield Branch and the Scour Trailhead? I could always find a flat spot and pitch the tent, but are there any glades, views or creek that would be nice places to camp? I'd like to hike hike far enough that there'd only be 4 to 6 miles left on the last day. That would put us between Hwy. N and the Black River. Any good spots on that section? If we hike to the Black River, can we camp there?

Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks!
