    Maybe so. If mama bear doesn't chain me to the hearth during fall break, I may try to hike the Chattooga River Trail over 4 or 5 days. Short days - hike in the morning - camp by noon or so - fish till I feel like eating. Mostly level, mellow walking. It could be a good time.

    What a great trip report!
    Those were some great pics of the scenery.
    I love walking through the tunnels of Laurel and Rhododendron.


    The cold Coca-Cola Hooch brought me...
    That's a good friend right there.

    That's a really good plan.

    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    Yet another great report, Bearpaw!

    Cookie & I hiked some of that trail back in the Spring. You'll really like it, look forward to reading your report!

    I'm looking forward to it also. I've hiked parts while walking the Foothills and Bartram Trails. It should be a nice time.

    Hopefully it won't be too hot. It's along the river so maybe some cool breezes will keep it comfortable for you.

    I figure by late October it shouldn't be too bad. Warm days, cool nights, with water still tolerable to maybe wash up in.

    excellent... always enjoy your reports

    Bearpaw... Where you planning on starting at for the CRT.. I have done all of the SC section and some into GA... I have been trying to figure out where the best place to start at (or end) in NC. Also find the best maps and or guides.

    I am thinking of starting at the trailhead near Garnett Hill and Whiteside Cove Roads. I'll have to walk maybe a mile of Bullpen Gap Road and catch the Ellicott Rock Trail where it rejoins the CRT (now numbered 221) at the SC line. From there, it's a pretty straightforward walk south and west along the Chattooga to the trail's end.

    I'm using the National Geographic maps #785 (Nantahala & Cullasaja Gorges) for the NC & SC sections and #778 (Brasstown Bald/Chattooga River) for the GA section. There is a guidebook for the region that includes some info on the CRT, but I dont' own it.
