Chattooga River Trail - Big Bend Falls

November 18, 2003

HIKERS - John Bellamy,  Terry Doyle,   Wayne Miller,   Bob Presley,  Tony Presley,  Rick Porter-Whitmire,  Dan Ross,  Gerald Shedd,  and Bob Thompson.

TRAIL INFO. - We parked at the Burrell's Ford Campground parking lot (off of SC HWY 107 north of Walhalla) and hiked south on the Chattooga River Trail / Foothills Trail beyond Big Bend Falls. Round trip 8+ miles.

Another beautiful hiking day! Cloudy with some fog and a couple of brief showers 60-65 degrees F. This section of the Chattooga River Trail combines with the Foothills trail for most of the distance. This beautiful section of the trail stays fairly close to the river for most of the hike.
