Spoonauger Falls another Big Payoff!

I love hiking along the Chattooga  River! The trails have a different sense of character, and it usually includes something pretty wild! This hike had one of the most "paddled" trails that I have hiked. It was thick with pine needles, lush with rhododendron, and super short and easy. There was some muddy up spots [...]

King Creek Waterfalls South Carolina

Click on the photo to enlarge. This is one sweet little hike that has something for everyone. There's plenty of rhododendron tunnels, pine needle padded paths, some rock scrambles, ups and downs, and a big payoff at the end with one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area: King Creek Waterfall. We [...]

Andrews Bald Conquered!

Click on photo to enlarge. I read the reviews for this 3.6 mile hike to Andrews Bald, and everyone, who seemed much younger than me, wrote things like: "Such an easy hike." Then someone my age popped in and said. "Moderate." LOL! It really is moderate—not strenuous but certainly moderate. Why, the rocks [...]

Warwoman Dell to Martin Creek Falls!

Rumor has it that North Carolina is open! But I am so glad that I have had this time to hike some pretty amazing trails right here in northeast Georgia! The trail to Martin Creek Falls is one of then. It begins at Warwoman Dell just off of Warwoman Road in nearby Rabun County. It's [...]

Hiking to Cedar Falls: A Good Escape

This was and is a beautiful little hike. I think round trip was close to 2 miles, maybe more like 1.5. It is remote; it is isolated; and I would suggest not going alone. (I sound like my Momma!) But it's pretty much off the grid. Some of you are so strong that you will [...]

There’s a way to get out for a Short Hike!

We started our hike to Panther Falls and Angel Falls in a little bit of a fern glade. This is a two-mile trail that's really a nice short hike with a few ups but mostly one that is full of really beautiful views. The trail begins near historic Lakemont and nearby Lake Rabun Beach Campground [...]
