Details

START TIME: 9:00 AM, RETURN TIME: 6:30 PM
Leaving from the Ridley Fields parking area off Hwy 28 (SC side of the River) this will be an out and back hike that runs along the Chattooga River Trail meandering along an upper slope away from the river and later along the banks of the river to the falls. There will be an optional side trail down a somewhat steep slope to the bottom of Licklog Falls (about a tenth of a mile) to the base of the falls where it empties into the Chattooga River before heading a short distance to Pigpen Falls where we will have lunch and wade in the water if desired. This will be our turn around backtracking the way we came, to the cars. This trail has several rooty or small rocky areas, a few wet creek/runoff crossings and some muddy areas; nothing too difficult. There are no significant ups or downs other than the optional side hike to the base of the falls. Solo hikers can meet us at Ridley Fields parking area (near Russell Bridge) 10:15-10:30 AM.
