“Concise and thorough in presenting the key trail data any hiker needs….it will be essential equipment in the pocket or pack of every Foothills Trail hiker.”
—Diana Ward, owner
Appalachian Outfitters, Greenville, SC
Although the 76.2-mile Foothills Trail begins and ends in South Carolina’s “golden corner” along the Blue Ridge Escarpment, it also passes through two of North Carolina’s most beautiful mountain counties. Along the way it crosses five rivers, passes numerous spectacular waterfalls, and climbs to South Carolina’s highest point.
This pocket guide by Scott Lynch contains concise thru-hiking directions from either end of the trail, detailed maps, major and minor trailheads; the best day hikes and overnights (and the best section for a 3-day weekend); campsites, water sources, and GPS coordinates. All this and more in a slim, easy-to-use format that will help you keep your pack small and light.
