Foothills Trail---Sloan Bridge to Bad Creek via Whitewater Falls
Saturday April 28--Let's meet at the Foothills Trail Bad Creek Access at 10:00, shuttle a vehicle or two to Sloan Bridge and start hiking. Camp about 2.5 miles in at a designated campsite. Lots of room and good water. Sunday April 29--Hike a total of 5.5 miles (mostly downhill) to view Whitewater Falls and the Whitewater River section of the Foothills Trail. We will camp at designated campsite at the end of this section: camping is prohibited along the river. Those who need to be at work Monday can hike the 3/4 mi. spur to their vehicle at Bad Creek. Monday April 30--Those that camped a second night can opt to slack pack a 2 mi. round trip to view Lower Whitewater Falls or simply go 1 mile to the parking lot after breaking camp. Call before hike day with any questions as cell service in the area is marginal at best. [masked]. Leashed, well mannered dogs are welcome.

What we're about

Public Group

This is a group for backpackers serving the Blue Ridge Mountains area. Our focus will be backpacking as we have numerous hiking groups in the area. Please list your level of experience on your profile so that the organizers will be aware that you qualify for an event. We will attempt to schedule a variety of trips ranging in levels of difficulty as well as some events for kids. We will also set up backpacking clinics for beginners that are new to backpacking. So, if you're the type that hates leaving the trail after a day hike, we invite you to join us.
