     We will start at Wilscot Gap and head West on the BMT.  The first mountain is Tipton which is tough.  Other summits include... Bald Top, Brawley Mountain (watch tower), Garland Mountain, Free Knob, and finally we land on the Shallow Ford Bridge.  We will have lunch here over looking the Toccoa River.  This hike is another attempt to get close to the watch tower on Brawley Mountain.  This will be an out and back hike that includes about 15 miles.  I would like for us to stop every so often so we don't get too spread out.
