    I'd love to do a Fla hang but that's too far away right now. The next time I do a long distance trip it's gonna be to Cumberland Island. That would make a great winter hang. No bugs and mild temps. Plus deserted beaches.

    Love to. I was just up there a few weeks ago. Climbed Blood Mtn twice, and slept up there once. Nice trip, but got wet when I woke up in the clouds.

    I'd be willing to do that one another weekend.

    Question Raven Cliffs Trail Condition?

    I will do my best to partipate, whatever weekend is chosen is fine with me. I don't know the current status of the trail going up to Raven Cliffs as the last I heard, the heavy rains earlier this year really destroyed the trail making very difficult to get up there. I hope this is not the case as I used to hike up and do solo overnighters just before the falls. If anyone is in the area and wants to confirm the situation up there, it would be appreciated by all.
    Thanks,

    Lazybee

    I was up there a couple of months ago and the trail was fine.

    So it's starting to sound like the general consensus is Raven Cliff Falls, yes? Are there any other suggestions?

    For a big group hang I recommend a site close to the parking lot. Preferrably a parking lot on a network of trails. Those that want to hike can take off and do their thing. Those that want to visit and check out the goodies, can pack in some firewood and cooking supplies, and non-hiking friends, and enjoy a leisurely Saturday...

    Well that sounds like Raven Cliffs then.

    GA hang, Which weekend works best for you?

    There's a similar thread here discussing a North Ga hang. Once firmed up on a date and location, let's make sure we invite those following that thread.

    Sort of the same thread. Once I got some responses I set up a poll to see what weekend would work best for most folks. Heading out this afternoon and will check out a few more spots that might work well for a group hang.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Up the trail about 2 miles....

    Sounds like the news on the trail condition is good after all, I am glad hear that! There used to be a series of wooden footbridges on the trail to the falls, at the FIFTH bridge, there is /was a little thicket to the right. If you walked through it opened up to a fairly large open area that we camped many times. It was not right on the trail but off about 50 to 75feet off the actual trail. It has been over 6 years since I was up there. Wasn't a hanger back then, but there were trees. If anyone goes up there and wants to check this spot out may be a consideration.
