The Bartram Group has a two mile stretch on East North (also known as) Old Spartanburg Road between Mitchell Road and Brushy Creek. We will meet at 9:00 A.M. at Mitchell Road Elementary School which is on the
corner of Mitchell Road and Old Spartanburg Road.

If it is pouring rain, we'll not meet. You will be provided the bags, twisty ties, work gloves, orange safety vests and water. We cover two miles, both sides of the street, and are very fortunate to have sidewalks on the entire route.

Pinnacle Pass - Rim of the Gap Dayhike, Jones Gap State Park

We will hike a scenic loop route, first hiking up the Pinnacle Pass trail over Little Pinnacle Mountain, taking in two of the best views in Jones Gap. We will have lunch at the second overlook. Then after back-tracking about a mile we will take a connector trail and return via the Rim of the Gap Trail. We may see some unusual flowering plants at a cataract bog near the lunch spot.

Rated Strenuous, 9 miles with 1800 foot elevation gain.
