WHITEWATER FALLS TO SLOAN'S BRIDGE--ONE NIGHT BACKPACKING

Come out and hike with us on a 5.5 mile easy section of The Foothills Trail in Pickens County. After meeting at Holly Springs Store, we will drive to the take-out at Sloan's Bridge, pile into as few cars as possible, and shuttle to the Whitewater Falls put-in. After a short hike to the lookout platform for a photo-op, we will access The Foothills Trail and begin the 3 mile hike to the gap below Round Mountain. A short hike down a spur trail will take us to some nice camp sites and water sources. After packing up on Sunday, we hike 2.5 miles to our cars.

Adventurers should arrange their own carpools to the meetup spot or trail head as appropriate. Don't forget gas money for your driver.

I will monitor the weather as we approach the date, and cancel if a washout threatens.

While not a long hike, the scenery and views of Lake Jocasse and Bad Creek are awesome. And isn't it all about just being in the natural world with friends, not the number of miles you cover ? So come out and play.

    Hey Jim,

    I might head in early to make the most of the day. If I do, I will just leave my Toyota at the trailhead and on Sunday just hike back to it. Looking forward to seeing everybody and getting out there again. Thanks,

    Jason.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
