Normally, I'd suggest the Chattooga River Trail but after seeing how trashed it was last week in some areas with road access - I might have to withdraw that suggestion.

In Episode 5 of the N2Backpacking podcast series, Ken Knight (aka The Weasel) discusses his experiences on the Chattooga River Trail which is a nearly forty mile route that borders the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia and follows the bank of the Chattooga National Wild And Scenic River from Burrell’s Ford to US 76.

In the podcast, we discuss four separate sections of the trail, some historical points (including Ellicott Rock and Commissioner Rock), some scenic waterfalls (including Spoonauger Falls and Kings Creek Falls), historical artifacts found along the river, night hiking and running in to hunting dogs on the trail, and why the Chattooga River is one of the most scenic areas in the Southeastern U.S.
