This will be a 5.5 mile hike on the Pinhoti Trail beginning at Clairmont Gap and ending at the Talladega Creek Bridge, both located at different points on USFS Road 600. This section travels below the ridgeline parallel to the road for about 2.6 miles where along the way it crosses a rocky area called “The Rock Garden” before ascending back across the road. After crossing the road, the trail travels another 1.4 miles past an area known as “Rocky Top # 2” before crossing the road a second time. From the second road crossing, the trail travels mostly downhill for another 1.3 miles before reaching the road a third time about .2 miles from the bridge. The majority of this entire section is characterized by rocky terrain so sturdy footwear is highly recommended. Those planning to participate should bring a lunch with something to drink and dress appropriately for the forecasted weather conditions for the day. The departure time and location for this outing will be 8:00 am from the Quintard Mall parking lot located on AL Hwy 21 in Oxford. Participants should meet next to the mall sign.
