Lower Otter Creek - Monongahela National Forest




A couple of my friends and I headed down to West Virginia, to the Monongahela National Forest to hike the Lower Otter Creek Trail Loop. We drove the whole way down in rain, and hiked the entire first day in rain, and then slept in rain. Needless to say our second day had us crossing Otter Creek three times and several other streams as well. With the recent rainfall and streams continuing to get higher and higher, we decided not to try the second day and head back to the car. This was very unfortunate because the area looked beautiful and I was really pumped for this trip. Hopefully we can make it out there again sometime, because Otter Creek looked like it would provide awesome fishing.

We crossed about 15 of these streams in the first two miles

Several waterfalls on the hike


This would be the reason that we decided against moving forward on day two.
