Did this section from North to South (actually started at FS500 Trailhead and worked my way through Duggar Wilderness to Burns Trailhead and then continued on). The Choccolocco shelter is in the SE corner of the man made lake, which for some reason is not shown on the map. I stayed there for the night and then continued on the next morning.

While lacking in dramatic cliff overlooks this section of trail is actually quite pretty. The Pinhoti trail along this section offers a broad range of forrest and vegetation as well as a prolonged parallel to a beautiful stream.

There is little cell service at the Coleman Trailhead so probably best to prearrange point to point pickup.
