We will leave from INGLES in Clayton at 9:45AM (arrive early for your bio break).
We park at Warwoman Dell, 3 miles from Clayton on Warwoman Rd. Almost immediately upon leaving the trailhead (1884 ft), marked by a plaque to William Bartram, we come to the first of the two waterfalls on this hike, a two-level cascade on Becky Branch. For the next half hour we hike roughly parallel to Warwoman Rd, then swing north and soon pick up Martin Creek, a picture-book creek with grassy banks and pebbly riverbed as well as swirling rapids and a spectacular falls, viewed from a platform. Leaving the creek, we steadily ascend through open woods to somewhere close to Courthouse Gap and take a side trail to Pinnacle Knob (3141 ft), which offers a splendid 180-degree view. The Forest Service has rerouted the trail to the top (it is easier).
Pace is moderate (2.0 to 2.5 mph) on the way up and faster on the return (2.8 to 3.0 mph).
This event does not have a carpool.
If it looks like it might rain on Tuesday, I might move this hike to Monday or Wednesday.
Hey, if you've not completed a recent D4, please send the trip leaders information on your recent hiking experiences (trail name, distance, date, pace), this enable us to ensure group safety.
|How to Get There:|
From the park and ride take I-85 North to I-985 North. I-985 turns into GA 365/US 23/US 441. Continue to the Burger King in Clayton, GA, for a pit stop. Once back in the cars, continue east onto Rickman Street. Follow Rickman Street for approximately 0.5 mile to its end at signed Warwoman Road. Turn right onto Warwoman Road and proceed approximately 2.3 miles to the Warwoman Dell Recreation Area. Turn right on a gravel road leading to the parking lot. The path begins at the far right end of the parking lot.
