100 Roy F. Jones Memorial Highway, Sunset, SC
Sorry for the late posting but I was trying a more personal approach by emailing members via the website. That just would not be fair to those I did not send emails to so I will post it as expected. One more try to get some participation. Same as before. Meet at the corner of HWY 11 and Roy F. Jones Memorial HWY (road that goes back to the Cliff's Vineyards) in Pickens County. This intersection is midway between the blinking light at Holly Springs Convenience Store and the Keowee River on HWY 11. Just go south or north on HWY 11depending on where you are coming from and you will find it. You will see my blue Nissan Pick Up Truck along HWY 11 at the intersection. Call my cell if you get lost (864) 247-3358. The short hike to Twin Falls is only .5 miles, very pretty, and only .5 hrs. Then we will drive to the trail head that goes up to Jump Off Rock. The trail head is at the end of Mill Creek Road. If you are late just drive to the end of Mill Creek Road which is off Cleo Chapman Road and wait for us. The strenuous but doable hike to Jump Off Rock is 7.5 miles, 4.0 - 4.5 hrs. Please pack lite when you bring your snack and drink. Dogs are welcome if they have good social skills and will behave on the trail. Please bring a leash in case you have to control them. I will be bringing Jake and Bailey and let them work the woods as we walk / hike the trail. Jump Off Rock provides an excellent photo opportunity for those who love to take photos of nature. It is the best view of Lake Jocassee in the area especially on a clear day. The only thing missing will be the radiant colors of the fall leaves. So this will be a fun day and I look forward to meeting, hiking, cutting up, and chatting with you. Jim Cooper "Coop"
