We will start at the end of the Pine Mountain Trail, and follow a connecting trail that links back with the PMT after 1.9 miles. This trail crosses GA 190 after approximately 0.9 miles. We will cross GA 190 again after 1.2 miles. The first several miles of the trail meander over a pleasant and varied forest landscape, with a few easy climbs. After 4 miles or so we will start walking upstream along a creek. We will cross this creek and one of its tributaries a total of 12 times, but the crossings are easy, and there is no reason to get our feet wet. At mile 5 there is a shallow pool fed by a small waterfall.
|How to Get There:|
Proceed South on Interstate 85 until exit 41. Continue south on Alt US 27/US 29. After Moreland, US 29 will branch right. Stay on Alt US 27. There are signs to Pine Mountain both on the interstate and on Alt US27.
