About 6.0 miles north of the Hwy 65/09 intersection in Clinton on Hwy 65, take County Road 79/Watergate Road (600 feet north and across from Botkinburg Foursquare Church – Correctly located on Google). Continue for 3.8 miles (keep right at both intersections) until it ends. You’ll see a sign for Double Drop Falls, the first place to access the trail system inside Bluffton Preserve.
If interested, see Carpooling/Caravanning Notes Below.
Objectives and Details:
Removal of debris from recent ice-storms (mostly cutting and removing deadfall that has crossed the trail); the western leg of the Bluffline Trail (mostly on the edge of the bluff) will be our focus trail.

If you would like to carpool/caravan, meet at Robert Fuhler’s house 29 Ridgeview Drive, Conway (correctly located on Google Earth) between 1200 and 1215.
Please be on time; notify me (Robert Fuhler 501.733.4019) if you will be late; I hate to be a pooty-head, but the departure time of 1215 is concrete as we will be on a schedule.
If you are in the Clinton area and would like to caravan or carpool, I anticipate being in Clinton at the south parking area adjacent to the Garden Center at Walmart (35.565993,-92.454202) between 1250 and 1310; look for a Dark Gray 4Runner.
Questions: call or text Robert at 501.733.4019
