Event 10 - Hunts Creek Falls -

Full Results


The 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗽𝘂𝗹𝗮𝗿 control was #12, visited by 97%. Interesting, not a control that jumped out as being the most obvious collection for everyone, but I suppose it's in Hunts Creek where the points are, and was an entry/exit option too.

The 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗽𝘂𝗹𝗮𝗿 control as Ross presumed was #10, visited by 16%.

Looking at the heat map, there is a definite 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 (red dots) for upper Hunts Creek and access routes, just a question of how far down the creek you ventured.

The 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗮 (blue dots) was the extreme west - the isolated 27 & linking 6 required significant distance for those 40 points. As Ross noted, #14 was hard to work into an efficient loop, and #19 was omitted by many who preferred a more direct access/return from Hunts Creek.
