Where are the blackberries?

Seems like they used to be easier to find. If anyone wants to share a good spot to pick blackberries, that would be swell.   I have a great berry recipe to try when I find some blackberries.    —

    Mimi –
    You need to check out the blackberry patches on the trails off of Camp 70 Road. After you pick some please share your recipes!

    Thanks!!! I will. (Can you be any more specific, or are they everywhere?) BTW, thanks for telling me about the buffalo coal company land/trails. I’m glad I got to hike around and look for birds a couple times before they posted the whole place for Mountaintop Hunting Club. (Too bad they don’t even let you walk!)

      I’m glad you made it up to the mine site to hike around before it closed. The wildlife on the site is fantastic. I miss walking there.
      For the berries – go across the Beaver Creek bridge on Camp 70 and park in the parking area on your left. It will be the first place you can park. Take the path that goes up the hill, on your right. Once near the top just look down. Some of the bigger berries are a little off the path. Happy picking!!

    Thanks so much, Kelly, I hope I can get there before they’re gone.
