I am considering a thru hike of the Foothills Trail in the upstate of SC Easter weekend. The trail is ~78mi. I am hoping to knock it out Friday through Sunday afternoon. I've never atempted to do ~30mi in a day, but with my average hiking pace of 2.5mph it seems rather doable. I pack light, but am welcome to company, particularly those who want to move. I am waiting to hear back about some school work I may need to do that weekend, but if I can get it all done before hand. I should be free.
The plan would be to start at Oconee St park Friday morning around 7am and make it to the Sloan Bridge area by nightfall (~27mi). Wake up around 6:30am and make it to the Laurel Fork Falls campground by nightfall (~30mi). Wake up around 6:30am and make it to the car at Table Rock St park around 4pm (~20mi).
This plan is still in the works and may be moved to another weekend. Is anyone interested?
