On the upper end of Cane Creek Gorge, you’ll travel through a remote area of the park that is a wildlife management area. Camping is available at Campsite 3. If you are backpacking, you must obtain a permit at the park nature center. Even if you’re not camping, the park recommends that for your own safety you sign up before hiking one of the overnight loops. The upper loop can get overgrown with vines and brush, the trail occasionally narrows, and you must keep an eye on the white blazes to stay with the path. So you may want to hike this trail in winter. Be aware that hunting occurs in the wildlife management area east of the main road and south of Fire Tower Road; check with the park staff to determine the hunting schedule.
