7.8 mi 5 hrs 1257 ft elev gain This is a beautifully wooded rocky trail with a few small stream crossings. It is definitely strenuous. Lots of steep sections, and sometimes hard to keep your footing on the roots and rocks. Lots of up and down. Extremely well marked!!

Great time outdoors with my daughter. actually saw a total of 4 deer bedded down just off the trail. She got a huge kick out of it and truth be told so did I.

Keown Falls Trail

It is an steep climb to the top but not very long. Once at the top you can walk along side the bluff enjoying the small waterfalls along the way. The only thing bad about the trail is once you start down the other side the trail can sometimes be hard to see. Most just hike to the first waterfall and go down the same way they came up which is the same distance just a lot easier to follow the trail. A good hike with a nice view especially during the fall. The first part of the trail is very well kept with a few benches along the way for weary hikers.

I always hike the dug gap trail head for pinhoti. As far in as time allows and straight back out the same way. It's fun a hike, you have to climb a gravel road to get to the actual trail which usually takes me about twenty minutes to climb. Cell service bc the towers right up there with the trail. The two times I've hiked it I went 7 miles and 5 miles in and out. Really enjoy this hike.

Confederate Line Trail

I grew up around this area and my elementary school would take field trips to the battlefield frequently. There are not many places to feel exactly alone there but there are some fairly nice hidden gems scattered throughout the area like the wild cross monument you may just happen upon while hiking through. Nice trails for running, good distances for moderate to easy runs. Great place to take the kids and plenty of deer to enjoy spotting once in a while too. If you are looking for a place to just get away for a short while and relax this area is not bad and not very challenging but worth the price of admission. It's free.
