Briefly about the general area:
Everybody loves Watoga State Park, and do take a hike on the Slabcamp Trail. Waids Draft is a pleasant place to spend some time at, and Greenbrier State Forest is a splendid place to go. This is a great river. Have a tremendous hiking adventure along the Beaver Lick Mountain Trail. Anthony Creek is a relatively wet place mostly with much rain. The month of July is the wettest with most of the rain, and February is when it's the driest. Through the warm days of summer at Anthony Creek highs are regularly in the 80's. When the night sets in temperatures descend down into the 50's.
