Amazing adventure part 1. We complete the first 15ish miles starting from Oconee and ended at Burrells Ford. Camped in the pigpen falls area - great sites with fire ring and cleared tent sites. Trail is beautifully maintained and well marked. Some sections with many roots and rocks - nothing too difficult (not even for our 10 year old) but some scrambling. Twice our group was attacked by yellow jackets - got us moving up the hill a bit faster. Very few people out most likely because of the rain. Look forward to the next section.
