Conasauga River Swimming Hole
Sunday, July 5, 2009


Brief Description:  Sunday afternoon stroll to the swimming hole on the Conasauga River (trail # 61) downstream from the Jacks River Bridge.  Swimming not mandatory.  Bring water, rain gear, and I'm taking a late lunch and a sand chair. Except for a beginning section of uphill climb, the rest of the trail is level or downhill.  The hike will begin at the upper end of the trail, following the ridgeline for 2 miles, then along the beautiful Conasauga River on an old railroad bed to the trailhead where cars have been left for the return trip.  Bring a lunch and plenty of water.
