Hangin' Burrito and I are planning an over night hang Dec. 12th on the South Mills River Trail at Turkey Pen Gap
Some info and directions.
Turkey Pen Gap is about 20 minutes South of Asheville, NC.
The Turkey Pen trail-head and the South Mills River trail-head are 30 yards apart. Taking the South Mills River trail to the camp site is about 1.5 miles of relatively easy going on an old logging road. The Turkey Pen Trail is all itís cracked up to be. If you decide to take this route (~6 miles) leave yourself time. There is a 600í elevation gain in under ľ mile Ė ouch.
We have been here several times and hiked the Small Turkey Pen Loop trail, which includes part of the South Mills River trail, last Friday. There is ample hanging room, a beautiful river, and lots of opportunity for short loop hikes as well as strenuous hikes.
The intended campsite is at ~N35 20.287 W82 40.236
All are welcome. I look forward to seeing as many as can make it
