Join me for the exiciting Providence Canyon, know as Georgia's Little Grand Canyon. An Easy D4 in the far depths of South Georgia. This is a great hike you want to move up from a D3 hike to a D4 hike.
We will start with the 7-mile Backcountry Trail Loop following the creek beds in and out of the the various canyons. Once we have completed the Backcountry trail we will do the shorter Canyon Loop, bringing our hiking distance to around 10-12 miles depending on he number of Canyons we explore.
For those who are interested in purchasing a Canyon Climbers Club card or getting their card punched, we will be stopping at Florence Marina State Park after the hike. The Marina is ~8 miles west of Cloudland Canyon State Park. For information on the Canyon Climbers Club, check out this link: - http://www.gastateparks.org/CanyonClimbers
The requirements for Part 1 are as follows: Club members need to hike the loop trail, with a side trip into scenic canyon 5, to complete their 1.5-mile quest. Because the park's visitor center is now closed, membership cards are punched at Florence Marina State Park, a short drive away.
