Pitch-em Tight to Hanson's Point. Little off trail action that can prove difficult for some. Worth it when you make it to the end. No water on the way so bring plenty, especially if you're camping.

I just did this trail over Labor Day weekend. The trail is wide and easy to hike. I took it in a couple of miles and then took Rough Trail to an unmarked trail to camp atround Hanson's point. The Gorge is constantly up and down with elevation, so you get a work out. The scenery along the ridge is nice - it was lush and full. With the humidity and high temperatures, going into the gorge was like walking through a jungle. HOT. But the scenery was also very pretty. I day hiked to Gray's Arch. It was a little dicey around a cave with wet rock, but all in all, a nice experience. I'd like to return on a cooler weekend.

I began Pinch em tight trail after as part of a large loop from Koomer Ridge to Grays Arch then back along PemT trail. After the end of a very grueling hike this section was a delight. The sign system at RRG is one of the best you can ask for. There are wonderful views of a creek system to the South with a nice campsite by Ooh La La Rock as well as Signature Rock. My only complaint are as usual man-made. Please dont carve on rock formations or trees! It's a discrace.
