Tearbritches Trail is a 6.5 mile out and back trail located near Epworth, GA. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking and camping.
Lots of elevation here in a very short distance. Starting out it's pretty dense and grown up, but the trail opens up nicely. Hike down Tearbritches camp at Boyd Field or one of the nearby campsites where the Conasauga River Trail, Hickory Creek Trail, and Panther Creek Trail meet and then dayhike up to Panther Creek Falls.
This trail is moderate going in, but if you have to come back out it, be prepared to feel the burn. At the bottom you can connect onto the Conasauga river trail or panther creek trail. The gain on the way out is about 2000 feet strait up. Beastly!
