Brier Creek

Brier Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Overflow swamps border Brier Creek, which often branches out into multiple channels. Occasional bluffs rise, changing the scenery. Despite the rugged terrain, some cabins are stretched along the stream, but overall they are infrequent and don’t rob the atmosphere. Pass many old bridge pilings, remnants of the logging days in this watershed. These will not be the only things sticking out of the water.

Falling logs will obstruct the way in places, but do not let this deter you from enjoying this gorgeous canopied creek where silent sloughs, disappearing alligators, screaming woodpeckers, and Spanish moss dripping from the trees add to the primordial effect."
