Awesome photos. I really like the close up shots. Looks like it got pretty chilly at night.

Thx guys.

Just out & back on the Hickory Creek Trail this time. Hiked from Rice Camp trailhead about 6 miles down to the Conasauga River and camped there. Trail is very nice. Lots of smooth ups & downs without much elev gain overall. Plenty of water sources. I crossed 4 creeks and another 6 small water sources at least on the way to the river.

Was thinking a good loop next time would be:

- E. Cowpen Trail to
- Hickory Ridge Trail to
- Panther Creek Trail to
- Conasauga River Trail to
- Hickory Creek Trail

Starting / Ending at the same parking area. Might be a two nighter on that one.
