    Anybody done Jack's River Trail (GA) this summer?

    Doing Jack's River Trail with a bunch of scouts Labor Day weekend. Wondering if anyone has done it this summer and what conditions are.

    Great Trail, you just have to be very careful with the river crossings, the rocks are very slick. The trail can also be hard to find at crossings, the trail itself is in good condition. No camping alowed at Jacks River falls/Beach Bottom area.

    I did it a few weeks back. Watch the rainfall. I was 11 river crossings up the river (I came from the Alculsy side) and it stormed all night. I had to stay another whole day just to let the water level go down enough so I could see the rocks in the bottom. I'm not in the best of shape and I had my dog with me so I'm extra cautious, but make sure you have extra food in case you get rained in.
