one area with BM Crow

From KY261 at the Hancock/Breckinridge county line, drive west about 0.5 mile and turn left onto gravel Hopewell(?) Church Road, drive south about 2 - 2.5 miles to a crest in the road. About 200 feet before (north of) this crest is a sign that says 'Black Bear, Don't Shoot, Protected.' Hike up the small hill behind this sign to the obvious, but wooded, summit. BM Crow was searched for, but we had no luck.

one area east-southeast Haynes Cemetery

From Fordsville, take KY54 southeast about 4.5 miles to its junction with KY919. Turn left here onto paved Matthews Lane and drive 1.6 miles, then turn left onto gravel Mills Cemetery Road. Drive about 150 feet to the road crest and turn left onto a dirt road that goes all the way to the summit. We only drove about 300 feet, but could have probably made it to the top if it hadn't rained the previous day. The top is somewhat open, and the highpoint is around some tree limb piles and 2 trees, to the right of the dirt road.
