Note that there is a closure area in effect in the Beech Bottom / Jack's River Falls area. Here is information from the USFS website: "Beech bottom/Jacks River Falls have become heavily impacted due to over camping and daytime alcohol use. Negative effects in addition to diminishing of the Wilderness experience include large amounts of trash and significant loss of natural vegetation. Unfortunately at this time, there is a total ban on campfires and alcohol from this area and restricted camping to six designated sites between November 1 and March 31; no camping is permitted between April 1 and October 31".
Closure are begins at the intersection of Beech Bottom Trail and Beech Creek; extends southward to the intersection of the Jack's River and Hickory Ridge Crossing; and then down river to the first crossing below Jack's River Falls - Rice Camp crossing.
