if you do can you check Hawkins Bridge also. that's hike-able and drivable from Batsto. it just reopened, but i heard a lot of trees were cut down.
You got some recommended hikes from Batsto to Hawkins Bridge? Looks like it would be road hiking (not that there is anything wrong with that). Also, Batona to Hawkins I'd be interested in. I'm all for Hawkins Bridge if it can hold 6 to 18 capacity hanging.
