ahighlan, I echo PA's thinking. For my 65th birthday I hiked Porters Creek Trail to Campsite 31 and back today scouting Porters Creek. Although I saw a few safely accessible points to the stream up high, there are far more opportunities to get to some good runs and pools in Porters from the bridge at confluence with Middle Prong up to below the trailhead gate. There were bugs galore, but I didn't fish. I'm waiting on my senior citizens license to come from Nashville.
Now... where did I put that Epsom Salts?
