Black Creek Trail: Janice Landing to Big Creek Landing Professional Review and Guide
"This section of the BCT stays along its namesake stream more than the lower section, making for easier access to the cool waters and those white sandbars. It is also harder to follow in spots, so have your eyes peeled for those white blazes. Leave the parking area near Janice and soon come to Black Creek, keeping along the stream before meandering in thick woods to reach a segment of bottomland replete with numerous swamps, sloughs, and wetlands. Work your way into pine country, where the open wetlands host many insect-eating pitcher plants.
Return streamside near Moodys Landing, where the trail follows Black Creek for several miles, nearing sandbars and climbing to piney bluffs offering great river views. Head into hill country again, where longleaf pines grow tall near the site of an old, abandoned Civilian Conservation Corps camp. Cross the highway, then make your most extensive pine-land walk before returning to Black Creek and its lush bottomland hardwoods. The last few miles of the trek stay streamside until the path arrives at Big Creek Landing and its northern terminus."
