Started at the middle trailhead, but took the dirt road down to the landing. Side trail to otherwise inaccessible beach and back through the spur on WMA property was a nice walk. Plenty of water throughout due to proximity of the lakes. Limited parking at trailhead, more at WMA entrance area

Very nice trail a little muddy in sections. The boardwalks were really slippery

Great trail, poor weather. We (gf and myself) hiked NE bound from Oconee SP to Table Rock SP. The trail is very well maintained by rangers and volunteers throughout. Trail paths are very well marked with white blazes. The trail is not riddled with magnificent mountaintop vistas, but then again, this is the foothills hike. Lush forests, green canopies, crystal clear streams, waterfalls, and rewarding climbs are just a few of the scenes you can expect to witness. Vista views are present and gorgeous at the Table Rock/Pinnacle Mountain descent. There are a few miles in the Gorges Area with bridges and stairs coated in algae or similar slimy accumulations which make passing a bit precarious. In addition, crossing the Whitewater River takes some considerable effort. The bridge does not completely extend from one shore to the other and forces hikers to shimmy across a large 10’ boulder before tossing their pack onto the bridge over a 2-3’ gap giving way to the torrent below. We started the day prior to a winter storm blowing in and felt the repercussions, facing 4+ days of persistent rain, whipping wind, and temperatures in the 30/40’s. On day 4 all of our belongings were sopping wet, and the food that we had would not last the duration of the trip. Luckily, we were able to reach out to a true trail angel- “Taz” - from the Foothills Conservancy website. This godsend of a man picked us up, fed us, allowed us the use of his shower and washer/dryer, and took us to Dollar General for a resupply. That small reprieve renewed our spirits and allowed us to complete the journey. While I do wish the weather had been sunnier, I truly enjoyed the experience and would consider hiking the reverse in future years.

Oconnee to Sassafras, late January. Made good 12 mile days, 5d 6n. 22f and 18f first nights, then warmed to above freezing. This pacing let us enjoy nice camping along many of the beautiful river junctions, excepting one night at Coley high up with amazing vista and stars. Setup camp just before rain fell near Toxaway bridge, on the lake. Rained hard from 8pm to 12pm the next afternoon. Might be a factor of the valley there to consider, with the high and long eastern ridge not allowing the sun to dissipate the clouds until it was straight up. However this half day of hiking dropped us right into Laurel Fork Falls that night, camping right on top. Be very careful here! Due to rain and other variables we left the next day on Mt Sassy where we'd left a car already. Overall very beautiful winter hike. Gorgeous rivers and falls. Super abundant water sources and camp sites. Provided a nice blend of challenge and ease. Highly recommend the guide by Scott Lynch, which made planning mileage very simple.

Great easy trail that is perfect for hiking solo, with 4 legged friends or biking. I saw kayakers and SUP in the waterway along the trail as well. Tons of great views and well maintained boardwalks.

This trail from Sassafras Mountain to Pinnacle Lake at Table Rock is much more than 9.7 miles. I’m 62 and a slow hiker. It took me 8 hours. There are a lot of blow-downs on the trail and the trail off of Bold Nob coming down from Pinnacle Mountain has been rerouted and not reflected on this app. This hiking trail does not become “Moderate” until about half way when it makes more sense to continue to Pinnacle Lake than hiking strenuously back up to Sassafras Mountain. If your not in shape select an easier hiking trail.

We hiked from Sparkleberry Landing to Packs Landing, the lake was very high so the trail was flooded with several bridges blown out. We had to hike around several wetlands. The trail was pretty and fairly easy to follow (marked with yellow “i” blazes on trees)

Did this hike today with a slight variation from the AllTrails map. Started at Raven Cliff Falls parking area and hiked clockwise on Coldspring Branch Trail to Jones Gap trail, finishing by taking Rim of the Gap westbound and returning to the parking area via Geer Hwy. Creek crossings on Coldspring Branch were quite dicey due to recent heavy rainfall. Rim of the Gap trail is no joke. Hiking up from Jones Gap is steep but presets no major obsticles. After the junction with the Pinnacle Connector trail, however, it becomes quite a bit more interesting. This section MAY have been closed due to poor conditions at the time I hiked it. Anyway... The trail is very narrow, mostly rock, mud and leaves, and requires a good bit of scrambling. For several water crossings and scrambles I had to toss my poles ahead, as both hands were needed for hanging on to rocks, limbs, and whatever else I could use to stay mostly upright. The trail is mostly easy to follow, but blazes are not consistent, and I imagine with more foliage in summer it could be a challenge. This trail is definitely no joke, far more challenging than anything I have seen hiking in the Smokies. That said, I was absolutely thrilled by it, and if you enjoy a truly challenging, technical hike, this is for you. Note: I would never advocate hiking a trail which has been closed by operating authorities. Always follow the advice of staff and trail operators.

One of my favorite hikes ever!! 2.5 miles from fish hatchery to the bridge over Chattooga and 2.5 back. (There is an option to go 2 other ways past the bridge.) I would rate this trail as an easy 5 miles hike. It is a bit narrow but wonderfully maintained. We follow the river the whole time so there are plenty of spots for dogs to rest and swim. Only a couple slightly uphill spots. Will definitely be doing this again.

Trail is well marked, there are bridges at all creek crossings and stepa for steep uphills. Views at the top are amazing on a clear day. There is room for a couple cars by the road where the driving direcrions take you. There is also a parking lot about 1/4 mile up a gravel road if those are full.

Excellent mostly flat coastal train with several low spots. Prone to flooding during heavy rains

Great trail and it gives all the experience of the best of the Foothills mountains. It goes through some super remote places and I've been out on the trail for days, not seeing another person the entire time. It has lots of big climbs and drops so I wouldn't over estimate your miles if you aren't in decent shape or don't plan on waking up early. One super important detail for trip planning is that in certain sections it's very tough to find campsites. From upper whitewater to Laurel valley falls and then from 178 to Sassafras I would only plan on camping at established sites that you know are there. I've made the mistake of planning for a certain amount of miles and not for a campsite and had to walk an extra 45 min just to find a site.

Very kid-friendly. Definitely make sure you use waterproof boots!

Great day for a hike but several large puddles that had to be bypassed (always dislike blazing a new trail) But for the most part passable and enjoying!
