Let's get out and backpack! Join a fun group of folks for some moderate backpacking on the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River Trail. After driving to the trail head at Russell Bridge, we'll hike about 4.0 miles to the area around Lick Log Falls and set up camp. There are several large areas to set up camp but it is 'first come first serve' so we may have to hike a little extra to find unoccupied space.
We'll have lunch and then scout the area and gather enough firewood for the evening. Afterwards, feel free to hang by camp relaxing, reading, fishing (permit required) and doing photography. We can also go hiking. As night falls, we'll hang around the fire ring (no fire allowed at this time), have our dinners and chat. Maybe someone will bring a guitar, harmonica and sing a song or two. Hint hint.
On Sunday, we'll take our time to have breakfast and break down camp late morning.
Dogs: 3 dogs maximum allowed on the trip. Must be friendly and behaved.
