6/26/2004 - Primarily just out driving around and ended up looking for this recreation area. Checked out the available trails, decided I'd be back with more serious intentions soon.
7/24/2004 - Made it to Squibb Creek Falls. Water level was down so decided it was the best to attempt. Heard a bear (but didn't see), saw lots of bear sign. The 94b road was undergoing a lot of work, closed to vehicles now but will be opened in the future.
8/27/2004 - Started out intending to go to Sill Branch Falls. Road crews were just removing their equipment after fixing the flood-destroyed bridge and advised the road was too rough for my car. Came to Horse Creek and hiked to Petes Branch Falls instead. More water would have been good but it's still nice anyway.
