Backpacking in the Sipsey Wilderness


This was an arduous trip completed the weekend of March 21. The trek can be traced here Sipsey Wilderness Adventure Extreme | Garmin Adventures. We camped near the mouth of Bee Branch Canyon. A little over 18 miles in two days. But it was worth it. By now, the trillium pictured should have popped out. If you decide to hike it, be prepared to make stream crossings. And on the Borden Creek Trail, make sure to find and go through Fat Man's squeeze. We missed the entrance and went out and around the rock outcropping, which made for a treacherous journey.
The SipseyWilderness.org website has a description of the Borden Creek Trail portion of this hike that is worth studying before going.
