Ascent Trip Report

Camped overnight at Rocky Falls, then shuttled to Klezmer Mill for the hike along the Ozark Trail. One needs to ford Rocky Creek twice via this route, when we did it the creek was about 1.5 feet deep and quite refreshing (i.e. about 35 degrees). The route passes through Buzzard Mountain shut-in's and a nice glade near the top. From the top we bushwhacked down along Terrapin Hollow, which was quite hard on the ankles and would not be recommended in the summer, ending up at the top of Rocky Falls.
