View Full Version : Section 7

I hiked Section 7 over Thanksgiving. I parked at the Cheaha State Park area and went south to Adams Gap, so technically I didn't do the whole section up to the Blue Mountain Shelter. This section of the trail is a bit different from the others in that it is in a designated Wilderness area. This means there is not suppose to be anything man made in it, hence they remove a shelter and relocated it to another trail. There is very little blazing and the trail can be difficult to follow. The leaves had just fallen when I hiked it and there hadn't been much rain in a while so I lost the trail often, especially nearing sunset. There were numerous blow-downs as well. This is a very busy section and I encountered numerous Hikers in small groups as well as many Scout troops. There is a big campsite where the Odum/Silent and Pinhoti intersect...gotta run will finish later sorry
