FOOTHILLS TRAIL Y'ALL: https://foothillstrail.org/
This map shows our elevation from TRSP (right side) to about where we call it a night (as you go left across the map)...as you can see we selected the harder stuff just for you ;) We should be able to set up for a fire - praying it's dry that weekend! So we can warm up, heat up food and "chill" by a warm fire before sleep. When daylight hits we'll get some hot food & coffee down then it's back to the casa!
Might consider a pit stop at Habanero's for a taco or two b4 heading back....we'll plan that as a group tho.
This is a D6 level backpacking trip, please register only if you're comfortable with an extremely difficult backpacking event and have recent AOC backpacking experience. If your experience is not from the club, please include it in a note when you register. The Trip Leaders reserves the right to remove registrants without a sufficient track record with the club for the safety of everyone. I encourage members to actively participate in challenging experiences, but most importantly - to stay healthy and safe so you can build from here.
|How to Get There:|
Atlanta to Table Rock State Park in SC. #GTS yo! I'm driving the Lil Sasquatch, so I can take 3 + myself - if we go bigger we need car 2.
Car(s) will be left at the Visitor Center located at 158 Ellison Ln. Pickens, SC 29671 . It's $5 per car per day...so yeah.

|Carpool Cost:||Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $104.80 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.|
