    Richard Ruggles saved Pinhoti Trail

    Richard Ruggles reviewed Pinhoti Trail: Pilchers Pond to Snake Creek Gap

    8 months ago

    This can be an out-and-back from either Pocket Road or Snake Creek Gap. From Pocket Road the trail is short rollers until the ascend up Horn Mountain for approx a mile. Once on the ridgeline, it's possible to catch a winter view of John's Mountain. There's exposed rock and loose scree mixed with roots in some segments but very runnable/hikeable. Overall a decent Pinhoti segment but not as scenic as John's Mountain or the North Pinhoti segment.

    This is a fairly challenging trail run as most of the trail has exposed rock, scree, roots, and other debris. The trail is maintained by a local Pinhoti Trail organization and they do an excellent job removing downed trees and keeping the trail well marked with the unique Pinhoti blaze.
    Mostly single track with some short FS roads at Dug Mountain and Stover Creek.
    Expect some climbing, mostly short rollers with a few that are steeper/longish.
    There's limited water sources and access for water drops but it is achievable with some research and planning.
    Overall, this is a great trail for running/training and/or casual hiking.

    Beautiful rugged trail with sprawling winter views. The parking area gate to the summit of Big Frog Mountain is 4.4 miles with 2,500 ft of elevation gain. If you do this hike on a cold-ish winter day, do not underestimate how cold and windy it will be on the ridgeline. There's a lot of downed trees and overgrowth but it's worth it.
