Lake Johnson Fairforest Creek Connector: Creek crossing


This crossing over Kelsey Creek is a great place to stop for a snack, observe wildlife and get your feet wet. It is also a great location to contemplate the history of our country, as a decisive Revolutionary War battle was fought just upstream. A surprise attack by the loyalists was thwarted by the heroics of Jane Thomas and her family at the Battle of Cedar Spring. Learn more at
