Black Creek Wilderness Area The Black Creek Wilderness was established in 1984 and contains slightly more than 5,000 acres.  The Black Wilderness is named after its dominant feature - Black Creek, which flows through its center.  The wilderness contains a segment of the Black Creek Wild and Scenic River and about 10 miles of the Black Creek National Recreation Trail. Black Creek bisects the wilderness, creating a large hardwood floodplain containing oxbow lakes and stands of sweetgum, loblolly pine, spruce pine, willow oak, bald cypress, sweetbay, and red maple. The terrain is fairly gentle, with elevations ranging from 100 to 270 feet above sea level.  The only development in this area is the Black Creek Trail.
