    Hiking Diva . reviewed Broad River Trail

    11 months ago

    Um, trailhead on either end is NOT in a residential area. Take Old Guard Camp Road to the T of 92B, turn left, go less than 1/2 mile - there is a small pull off to your left before you start going up hill. The trailhead is on the opposite side of the road, less than a hundred feet down - easy to drive past but hard to miss when walking. Search Georgia WMAs for the line map. It is a point to point. Honestly, I would start at the end I gave directions - several nice waterfalls/shoals along the river, fairly flat. Then it trail goes across a lot of open areas, which in warmer months can be unpleasant. I would not recommend this trail if you have little ones or are afraid of heights bc there are some very narrow spots with steep drop offs. I have done point to point - not any particularly interesting spots to camp. Popular spot for fishing. Seen quite a few deer.

    LOTS of trees down since Hurricane Irma in Sept 2017 - I have not hiked it since, but the amount of trees down across the road, I can imagine it would require a lot of clearing. The Sourwood Trail was cleared quickly, but I believe that is bc of the bikers - bring a machete or just be prepared. Can always ask Ranger if trail has been cleared, but the Rangers here I have encountered haven't known much about the trails.

    This is NOT in Lake Russell National Recreation Area - it is Lake RUSSELL WMA which is next door to LRNRA. It is dirt roads that can get pretty bumpy, especially after a rain. The roads are not "impassable", I do not have a 4wd but drive slowly. I have seen beat-up subcompacts make it without issues.
