Devil's Armpit

One of our several “natural” obstacles, is actually a historical artifact left over from the 18th century “Iron Age” of Southern Ohio, when the locals would excavate the hilltops in search of iron ore to feed the many charcoal furnaces of the area.  Now that you know the history, you can really enjoy the slippery, muddy mess as you struggle through it!
