This is Section One as designated by the Pinhoti Trail Alliance. Section One covers roughly twenty miles of the Pinhoti long trail from the southern terminus NOBO. The trail passes by the Flagg Mountain tower and cabins, featuring one small shelter around the three mile mark. The trail includes two road walks, one that passes through the little town of Weogufka. The second upon exit from the Terrapin Highlands all the way to parking at section end. The road walks will be minimized in the near future with some additional development of the forest trails. Trail is well blazed with baby blue rectangles and occasional Pinhoti turkey-foot badges.

Pavilion at the southern terminus. Flagg Mountain tower and cabins around the 2 mile mark. Small shelter near mile 3.

Parked and shuttled to the southern terminus by the Pinhoti Outdoor Center with a group of Mississippi backpackers including recorder, Jonathan Thomas Tumblin. Our goal was to complete the near twenty miles of actual Section One as laid down by the Pinhoti Trail Allowance. Started at the terminus, up to Flagg Mountain tower where we met the legend, Tumblewill Nomad, and then down the mountain to camp at the first shelter around the 3 mile mark. Long day Saturday included some road walking all the way to the base of the Terrapin Highlands where we camped by the stream. Really nice campsite there despite the blowdowns. The worst of any climb day three over the mountain (about 2.5 miles) to the last road walk. I am no fan of road walks and will be happy to have that pushed off into the woods which I hear is coming soon. Really challenging and enjoyable trip. Looking forward to doing Section Three soon.

First to Review

Finished Section 1 and Completed Section 2 on the Pinhoti. Water level was high which made the water crossings difficult. A lot of recently cleared trees from the hurricane. Road walk was a road walk
