hanging out in greer for the long holiday weekend, i wanted to go for a hike, but only had a spotty signal on my cell phone, especially for data. oh well, i did see this trailhead up the west fork road. i wanted something a little more challenging, but i wasted the day away thinking it was going to rain, and then we had company, so there you go. i guess this used to be a self-guided trail with interpretive signs and such, but the numbers only started at 9, so 1-8 must've burned. there are a couple of the other non-numbered signs that survived as well.

the west fork road has a sign saying "locals only," but since i was staying with a local, i didn't mind that, nor do i think most folks on the road. a month or so back, a little past the trailhead, a cement truck had pulled a little over to let another car past, and slipped on the signed "soft shoulder" - almost all the way to the river. no one was hurt, but eventually, they are going to have to find a way to get a fully loaded cement truck out of the canyon.
