The Pinhoti Trail is a 335 mile long trail located in Alabama and Georgia. The trail's southern terminus is on Flagg Mountain, the trail's northern terminus is where it joins the Benton MacKaye Trail in Georgia.
Join me as I start at Snake Creek Gap, make my way to Pilchers Pond and then on to Keown Falls. This trek has 3 significant climbs, but nothing that will buckle your knees. Keown falls will be our lunch location. We will move quickly over the long flat areas so we can enjoy the highlights. Expect an average speed of about 2.8 mph, the fast side of moderate.
This is a long D5 hike, recent D5 experience is required to join the fun.
