Conasauga River Trail Dayhike
Wednesday, June 3, 2009


Brief Description:  The trail was changed from Tearbritches to Conasauga River Trail due to strenuousness of the former.  The Conasauga River Trail in GA differs from the one near Jacks River in TN.  It drops steeply to the river in the first mile, then levels out and stays with the water.  There are numerous crossings so be prepared for some wading. The last time I did this hike I managed to cross 6 times without getting my feet wet, but that could change!  We will go approx. 6 miles round trip and stop for lunch.  Bring food, water, raingear, and swim if you like.

Length 6 miles

Difficulty Rating: Moderate

Elevation Gain: minimal
