I think the editor of Edgefield Daily.com read the post on our site and took it from there based on his own limited knowledge of local trails.
He doesn't know that there is a trail called Stevens Creek, he just knows that Steven's Creek flows (somewhat) near FATS and wrote what he pictured in his head. He asked me in an email if the incident took place near Fury's Ferry Landing. I told him that the incident actually took place at a different trail along hwy 23 that connects Modoc to Edgefield. Not sure why he didn't correct the story.
FWIW, Stevens Creek flows at the bottom of the gravel roads many folks ride in the area called Buzzard's Chute or Butter. If we could get across Stevens Creek in this location, it would be a fairly short ride to the Modoc Trail. Fairly short being about 10 miles. Back in the days of riding long thru the forest, I always wanted to leave a small boat here to get across. Never did that.
