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 [...]

Perfect for a Sunday Afternoon!

Here's a perfect Sunday afternoon walk—not a hike—but a visit to the Chenocetah lookout tower. This evening the sunlight (golden hour) was perfect for my little Sony A6000 camera. Lake Russell is seen in the distance of this photo. This is an easy Google to get the directions. Hint: The tower is located on Chenocetah [...]

Staying in Place along the Tugaloo River

Spring greens were everywhere a couple of weeks ago along the Tugaloo River. In our attempt to get outside but also social distance, we stayed close to home. This is a little hidden hike of about three miles round trip. We made it longer by crossing a river and then walking out through a wetland [...]

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 [...]

Hiking Works along South Carolina Trails

  So this was my first Covid-19 hike. We hiked to the top of a fire tower and then headed on down the road to Licklog Falls. We had no idea at the time that it would be just the first Friday in a two month event. South Carolina has some beautiful hiking trails that [...]
