Log Description

This is Little Seneca Creek, one of the three main tributaries to Little Seneca Lake in Black Hill Regional Park. Along with Cabin Branch and Ten Mile Creek, the waters from this creek run year-round, feeding water into Little Seneca Lake. Streams and their surroundings are in a constant state of change. Rain events raise the water levels and rate of flow, often changing the course of the water channels and eroding the banks. Look for trees chewed by beavers, early Spring ephemeral wildflowers, and the beautiful colors of Fall. The landscape of a creek is ever changing and amazing to observe.
