Chief, what was your exact route on this hike? Was there another place to leave your car. And one other question. Is there a campground for RV's anyplace in that area?

I ain't skeered of nuthin'. Big Foot did freek me out a little. Barry just hiked thru the Bardin Booger Woods. There is at least one designated campsite and the Iron Bridge Shelter and a few other sites. Heck, I went back to the spot where I saw the Big Foot Prints and there was this girl passed out drunk by her 4-wheel drive cowboy camping. I didn't bother to tell her about the Bardin Booger. I figured she was waiting to meet up with him anyways.
Barry last reported he was heading North from Gold Head on Sunday and I was hoping to meet up with him. Since he and I graduated from the same HS I was looking forward to meeting up with him. Maybe next time.
Let me know when you're hiking and we'll meet up.
LW's done more hiking in the Ocala Forest than Benton MacKay and Grandma Gatewood combined.
I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.
Bumpjumper: there is RV camping at the Suwanne Valley KOA and at Stephen Foster State Park. My route was exactly as I stated earlier in this thread. Plenty of safe places to park, at Lilly's, at the Little Shoals trailhead, and on the other end at Suwannee KOA, the canoe outfitters in town, Visitor Center, etc. The canoe outfitter, American Canoe Adventures I think, will let you park there free and shuttle you for a small fee. The whole area is very hiker friendly, and in my (limited) experience the most scenic of the FT.
