Bowater Pocket Wildernesses
To help meet the growing demands for recreation and to demonstrate
that forests can offer many opportunities,
Bowater has established
and maintains scenic hiking trails.
Several of these trails wind through Pocket Wilderness areas that have
been set aside by Bowater for preservation in their natural states.
Trails are for foot traffic only, and camp only in designated area.
No hunting or firearms.
Honey Creek pocket wilderness is now a part of the
Big South Fork.
Here is a
pan/zoom map with wilderness areas marked.
