Date/Time: Saturday, December 3rd at 9:30am. We will meet at 9:30am and take off from the trailhead starting at 9:45am.
Where to meet: Fox Den Cove Parking Lot in FDR State Park. This parking lot is smack dab in the middle of FDR State Park. It is on Georgia 190 and is a mile east of Kings Gap Rd. I am including the coordinates. Just throw them in google maps and it should pinpoint the location. Coordinates:[masked], [masked]
What to bring: Bring a small day pack or a small backpack, at least a liter of water, snacks, athletic shoes, and anything else you may want. Also bring $5 for the parking registration that is required to hike the trail.
Details of the hike: Saturday's hike will be a loop on the middle of the pine mountain trail. We will be doing a 6.9 mile hike that crosses many of the hills at Pine Mountain. In terms of difficulty (1-10, 1 being a walk around the neighborhood and 10 being climbing Mount Everest), the Long Leaf Loop is rated as a 4.5. The hike will take 4 hours. I will be driving out there with a few people from this group. If you need or want a ride, or just don't want to pay the parking fee, message me and I'd be happy to carpool. If you have any questions on how to get there, what all is needed, or literally anything else, please message me and I'll be sure to get back to you.
