Brasstown Falls and then BBQ

This is a fun little adventure! A short moderately trafficked quarter-mile hike takes you to a series of waterfalls that really will take your breath away. Oconee County in South Carolina contains 150 waterfalls. The Cherokee name literally means "land beside the water."

My Rabun Bald Hike!

There has been so much rain this winter that our mantra has become: When the sun is out, you hike! And the sun was out on Saturday. Hiking to the top of Rabun Bald (4,696) was on tap.

The historic Stumphouse Tunnel is also located in the park, so you can visit both places [...]

The hike up to Pinnacle Knob was a good surprise. (See the directions at the end) We had heard that it was a nice hike and it was. Plus, it has some of the best views in northeast Georgia right behind those at Unico Gap and Mountain Crossings. After a quick check of the hiking [...]
