OtterCreek Wilderness Area

OtterCreek Wilderness Area is best accessed across the river by car.... drive back into Parsons and go up through the villages of Hambleton and Hendricks and a few miles past, off of Rt. 72, you will see parking for OtterCreek.  Another beautiful swinging bridge and miles of spectacular hiking along OtterCreek.
