I hate like hell for this: http://fannin.fetchyournews.com/archives/1834-State-Fire-Marshalls-Investigate-Fire-at-Toccoa-Riverside-Restaurant.html

It was one of my favorite BMT spots. It made a long section where you couldn't (legally) camp worth slowing down for.

Was that near the trail? I don't remember seeing it in Blue Ridge. We at at the AYCE by the motel.

This was on Aska Road and the junction with Stanley Creek Road. The trail was a road walk right in front of the place. I ate there one night and then did a stealth across the creek from it.

Oh yeah, that's the place that's closed when ever I walk by it. The first time I stopped and cooked a ramen while sitting on the bench in the front of the place...it was a holiday or something. The next year it was the day of the week.

They were closed when I hiked there also.

they opened for lunch and then closed again until 4:30. y'all's timing must have been off.

You're not the first person to say that I must be a little "off."

Yeah... Your comment that "I didn't seem to be all there" got me in. Thanks.

bummer. they had a killer smoked trout.

not so much a good thing but a less worse is the direction of the river. i'd hate the think all that cruddy run-off went the other way.

i hope they rebuild.

I may have to keep hiking the BMT until that restaurant is open.
