Re: Looking for hidden or little known poi's near WolfPen
Sugar Creek is south of WPG. Mr. Cogburn pass away at the age of 104 about 5 years back. BTW, I don't believe the part played by John Wayne was based on any real person. Mr. Cogburn's shack is located just across from Shady Rest. Shady Rest and the shack belongs to Mr. Cogburn's son. It is a very nice place to stay, as is Sugar Creek Lodge - Roger and Christian are great folks.
While I have heard of various mines, I have not found any. There is the cave/tunnel that goes through the mountain over NE of WPG. While there are swimming holes on several of the creeks, the only one that I have found that is really notable is the Blue Hole over off 99 East of Albert Pike.
Oh, and there is an open area SE of Albert Pike where they haul rock that appeared to have closed years ago, but you can still ride over there - not much to see though.
If you find a cave with a swimming hole or other mine shafts, I would be interested to hear about them.
And, I have never heard of any old west town. Sugar Creek Lodge is set-up like an old west town though, with a general store, church, school/gym etc.
