Boone and his road cutters used game trails found along Roundstone Creek to avoid the extra work of clearing a way through the brush and cane. David Lynch, in 1814 deposition: <The buffaloes made the road and Boon Marked and traveled the same road. The hills were Caney and Steep and the bottoms of the creek was the most convenient place for a road.> Neal O. Hammon, "The First Trip to Boonesborough," THE FILSON CLUB HISTORY QUARTERLY 45 (1971):249-63.

Hammon, citing the difference between James Hall's estimate of the fort's size, and Moses Boone's estimate that it enclosed about an acre, concludes that the fort was about 180 by 240 feet. Hall shows two gates, while Boone only one on the south wall. The "treaty spot" was 60 yards directly in front of the south gate, on the trail from the Indian camp to the spring. This fort did not long survive the end of Indian menace. Neal O. Hammon, "The First Trip to Boonesborough," THE FILSON CLUB HISTORY QUARTERLY 45 (1971):249-63.
