After staying home for a few days because of the rain it was time to hit the trails. Temperatures today almost hit the 60 degree mark. I decided to hike the high trails today because they always dry out fast. Out of the 3.2 miles of this loop I completed today, only 5% of it had mud. This is by far my favorite loop in the Orange Grove and Hilton Area. Sawmill trail has water cascading on it and a cool rock hop boulder scramble. The Santee, Pig Run and Forest Glen are like hiking the AT with lots of rocks. If you like the best of the best then hike this loop. I created a map last year of this complete area of the park.
