All hikers will meet at the Rally Point for hike briefing and key swap. Hikers converge on Ellicott Rock, the trisection point of SC, NC, and GA on the Chattooga River, from two opposite directions. After exploring the survey markers placed as early as 1811, hikers will exchange keys and hike out of the Ellicott Wilderness Area by the other route. Southbound hikers will drive to Bull Pen Road access and hike Bad Creek and Fork Mtn. trails to Ellicott Rock. Northbound hikers will drive to Walhalla State Fish Hatchery and hike East Fork and Chattooga River trails to Ellicott Rock. The key swap will occur on the beach area just north of “The Rock.”
