We love the Blackwater River State Forest and camp and hike (walk?), there quite often - our favorite hike is from Bear Lake to Krul Lake. When camping at the Blackwater State Park, (within the B R State Forest), we enjoy the hikes on both sides of the river; and we have made the trip around Bear Lake twice now - another nice little hike. Being in our mid to late-60s we don't do big hikes very often, but up to about five miles is still enjoyable. We've never been to Karrick, but our kids have, and said it was very nice.
