This creek is private but is "open" and no attempt has been made to keep people out. I would say that during the summer at least one person likely visits each day so you may find other cars parked here. There is also usually a lot of garbage here unfortunetely. There is a large gravel parking area on slate rock road with room for a dozen cars. Visitors may also notice that just south of the glen there is a mennonite farm on one side of the road and a new $1M home on the other side. Not something you see everyday.


Most people will probably only find it worthwhile to walk about .25 miles downstream from slate rock road.
This glen, though smaller than kashong glen, is much more accessible in that you don't need to worry about getting arrested (which you do at kashong)

Just wanted to make a note that a couple of "private property" signs have been posted at Wilsons Creek. The land recently changed hands from an out of state owner to one that owns much of the lower glen. I know the owner (and while I'm not speaking for them) I think it was done for the sake of liability/in case they have problems with anyone. The signs haven't stopped people from going here (there were 3 cars as I passed on Saturday), but I thought everyone would want to know that you'll now only see the crest of the falls without crossing private property signs.
