Inscription. Benjamin Logan left Booneís Road, April 15, 1775, following trace that became the final segment of “Wilderness Road.” Loganís path ran along an obscure trail from this area to Harrodsburg, then to Falls of the Ohio. The intersection of the trails became known as Hazel Patch, a junction 8 miles north of present-day London, Ky.
