The Foothills Trail is very diverse and offers numerous vistas, waterfalls, Jocassee Lake, the Chatooga, Toxaway, Horse Pasture, Thompson, and White Water Rivers, numerous streams and bridges, including a 226' suspension bridge over the Toxaway River, and about a million steps, most of which are on Heart Break Ridge, It really is quite the trail and I highly recommend it if you are looking to do your first thru hike.

We will be shuttling from Table Rock State Park to Oconee State Park and we'll start the hike from Oconee.

We want to be on the trail by 8:30am the latest so we'll need to leave Table Rock by 7:30am

There is plenty of water on the trail so make sure you bring your water filter/ Purification tablets ext. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out. See you all there.
