Now that you got a taste of bushwhacking on the hike to the waterfall on Low Gap Creek, are you ready for something more difficult? Have you ever heard of the West Fork of Cochrans Creek? That's the name I gave to the unnamed tributary that lies to the west of, and that flows off the same ridge as, Cochrans Falls. This hike begins at the same trail head as my recon to Cochrans Falls. This time, I drove across the second ford that you come to after turning onto Blackhawk Road.
