We were walking around in this area. We stopped to see where the B-52 crashed many years ago. A very somber site because you see where a few of our servicemen lost their lives. They have a tribute site there and it's worth a visit....More

Just wow, never seen or heard of being able to see a plane crash site, let alone have a well maintained dirt road take you there! This place is one of a kind. If you get the chance check it out, takes about 1.5-2 hours...More

This is an amazing place to see. There are two ways to get here which requires off road driving but is accessible with a car depending on the time of year you visit.

We took our kids to show them some local history. The hike was not to hard. Watching the kids somber faces as they saw that this airplane crash was ever so real was priceless. They each took something from our adventure.

The site is amazing and very sad at the same time. We got lost, huge surprise. Tip-don't follow the signs with the airplane and Greenville on them. They bring you back to Greenville. Also, don't take Scammon Rd. Keep going on Lily Bay and take...More

My husband and I visited the B-52 bomb site today. The road in and out is dirt and in places, rutted with exposed rocks. Beyond that, the site is an incredible place. The walk in is very easy and can accommodate all ages. There is...More
