Peachtree Rock

Easy hike, but scenery and endgame dull. Of course, the peachtree rock fell over and the waterfall is well, humble to say the least. What struck me as dull however was the large amount of trash and evidence of recent fire. Trail was lightly used, but was hang out for local high school kids to smoke.

Foothills Trail - A9 to A11

The Foothills Trail section between Sloan Bridge and the Fish Hatchery Rd. is fairly easy with some nice waterfalls and plenty of streams. The section between the Fish Hatchery Rd. and Burrell's Ford encompasses ridges and mountain tops and offers nice views when the trees are leafless. Starting at Burrell's Ford means a heart pumping climb up Medlin Mountain.

This was a solid trail. I went from the Carrick to Pinnacle then over to the Table Rock. There is a ton of elevation so it was a good challenge/ I will do it again and take the dog next time. The Table Rock portion of the trail is very crowded so I actually enjoyed the Pinnacle piece a little better but not as scenic.

Fork Mountain Trail

Fairly uneventful trail other than climbing over, under, and the many deadfalls. I did this trail as a loop, Foothills Trail from Burrell's Ford, Fork Mountain Trail to the Chatooga Trail to Burrell's Ford. It's not marked very well so pay attention. I spent the night on this trail and never saw another soul which made me appreciate the Ellicott Rock "Wilderness".

This trail was excellent. It is certainly strenuous. Part of it are on the rock banks of the river. It was clear to us they are done a great deal of work. We found the perfect spot somewhere between big bend falls and lick log. Everyone was friendly and kindling was plentiful. I highly suggest taking your dog if they are tame. I took a friend for their first camping trip and they had an incredible time. Great views.

Oconee Station & Station Cove Falls

Station cove falls is great - tons of trillium and mayapples to see. Also, buckeye bush is blooming. It's still sunny because the leaves on the tall trees are not out yet so wear sunscreen! Great waterfall too!

Unless you are a glutton for punishment, I suggest doing this loop trail counter clockwise. Really enjoyed the moderate rated portion of the trail. Combine that with Pipsissewa and North Lake for a really enjoyable hike.
