On September 14 & 15 FCSAR members participated in a hike from Shore’s Lake to White Rock Mt. and back to Shore’s Lake hiking the East and West Trails.
The group consisted of Dana Phillips, Susan Edens, Courtney Crawford, Leon Hall, Zack Marry, Logan Sutter, and David Sutter.
Saturday (Sept 14) the group hiked from Shore’s Lake to White Rock CG using the East Trail which is 8 miles long. Rex Anderson met the group at White Rock CG that evening and prepared a tasty dinner including smoked chicken quarters and a Dutch oven peach cobbler. The group enjoyed a gorgeous sunset and perfect weather.
Sunday Sept 15 the group hiked back down to Shore’s Lake on the West Trail which is 6 miles long. There is currently some timber cutting being done near the West Trail; however the trail is in good condition and the Muscadines are ripe and delicious plus they grow near the trail. We picked and ate them as we hiked.
Franklin Co. Search and Rescue will continue to have group hikes throughout the Fall and all FCSAR members are welcome to join us.
