    Upstate SC 2012 Spring Hang-Chattooga River April 13-15

    When- April 13-15
    Where- Chattooga River Trail.
    Hike north along the Chattooga from Burrells Ford to the bridge over the East Fork. There is a multitude of hanging opportunities just before you cross the bridge. It's about a 30-45 minute easy hike from the trailhead.

    On the map below, the purple line is the Foothills Trail. Burrell's Ford is near the bottom.
    The black line is the Chattooga River Trail.
    The green line is the Fork Mountain Trail. It runs from the Sloan's Bridge Picnic area on the FHT to the Chattooga River. The teal line is a 10 mile loop from the river, up to the Fish Hatchery and back.



    To get to Burrell's Ford

    From Walhalla SC, go north 8.5 miles on Hwy 28 to SC 107. Go right on Hwy107 for 8.9 miles to Burrell's Ford Road (FR 708). Left on Burrell's Ford Road for 3 miles to Burrells Ford Campground parking area. Drive on past the parking lot for the campground and park at the bottom of the hill at the trailhead on the right. If you get to the river, you just passed it.


    Or...set your GPS for Oconee State Park. This will take you all the way to Hwy 107, just a few miles south of Burrell's Ford Road, on the left.

    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.

    I'm out this time, fellers. I'll be out hiking, but y'all have a good time just the same.

    Man.... I sure am going to hate to miss this hang. Many factors going against me right now but don't count me out yet! Not going down without a fight first but the family sure is tough!

    Well, I wanted to go to the SC Spring hang, but the weekend would not work out. This one should. I'll pencil it in for at least one night.

    This is really close to my wife's anniversary. I wonder if she would let me go on this trip instead of taking her somewhere with 4 walls and a bed and an ocean view.

    If you don't ask, you'll never know for sure.

    Sounds like alot of fun. The 14th is my B-Day woohoo. Sounds like a good chance to try out my gear for my AT thru hike starting May 1st. Have to see if the GF will let me go though.
