This is a pleasant hike and a beautiful area to spend a day in. We didn't do the full shuttle since we were lacking a second car. We did an out and back from the south/eastern TH and turned around about 6.5 miles in. Lots of river crossings make Teva's or some type of water shoes necessary. I've never hiked that far in Teva's before and they were totally fine for this trail. The farther in you go, the deeper the water gets and only a couple of the crossings can be done by hopping across rocks but the water is cold and a perfect way to cool down those feet on the trip back. From TH to TH, there are supposedly 38 crossing and the final ones on the west side can apparently get to almost waist deep. At our turnaround point, the deepest we found were about knee height.

I'll definitely do an overnight here next time I'm in Georgia and post a hike description after I've done the whole trail. There are tons to beautiful campsites and the trail was totally dead. We saw one pair of backpackers the whole day. The only disappointment was the lack of wildlife. We saw lots of giant millipedes, butterflies, and hummingbirds but nothing else. Although, while driving back on the forest roads, we got a great view a very large and beautiful owl and also a wild turkey.
