Hickory Creek in the Allegheny Forest

21-22 June 2008. Hickory Creek in the Allegheny Forest in PA. Me, Glen, and Jen departed Sat AM. Arrived at the trailhead around noon. After signing in we hiked to Jacks Run counterclockwise. We had heard thunder rumblings in the distance but the sky was still clear. We continued to the 3rd campsite at Jacks Run. After setting up camp we made a fire and cooked dinner. Soon after we had finished the first of the rain began. It was light and refreshing. By 9pm we had a torrential downpour with the full storm. A group of hikers passed through on their way to another site? Slept soundly in the hammock though there is a small part of the tarp I need to seam seal a little better. Started a fire the next morning with wet wood. I surprised myself.12 miles total.
