three areas north of Birdie
From Birdie at the junction of KY395 and KY512, go north on KY512 for 0.5 mile and turn right at the
Corinth Church Road. Drive behind the church and park at the basketball goal, then hike east up the open
grassy knoll behind the goal about 100 yards to the first area.
Return to KY512 and continue north for 0.4 mile to a blue house on the right. This house is at the second
area, and the highest spot is in the backyard near the end of the drive. For the third area, get permission to
go through or around their livestock pasture and barn and walk 150 yards to the third area on a small grassy
hill. Hand-leveling indicates the house spot is higher than this hill.
four areas southeast of Hickory Grove
From the junction of Fox Creek Road and KY749 go east on KY749 0.1 mile and park. We asked
permission at the next house on the right to check the two areas here. The first is on the left side of the
road, just at or over a fence, and the second is near a barn down a gated farm road, 150 yards from the gate.
Hand-leveling here indicates the roadside spot is slightly higher. We met the son our first time by and he
said we would have to come back and talk to his dad even before walking behind the house, and he said his
dad was peculiar about people on his land. When we returned the mother was home and gave us permission
to look around.
Drive east on KY749 0.3 mile and turn right onto Bondville Road and park 0.1 mile farther at a gravel path
up to a water tower. The third area is about 70 feet into the grassy field from the water tower fence.
A neighbor says the landowner wouldn't care about quick hikes.
For the last area, continue southeast on Bondville Road 0.4 mile and park at a gate signed
"Gate must remain locked". We didn't intend on unlocking the gate, so climbed the gate and hiked
up the dirt road about 200 yards, then cut left uphill about 150 feet to the grassy summit of area 4.
The owner doesn't live nearby according to a neighbor, and the road goes to a radio tower
much farther down the ridge.
