Great trip. Perfect weather, although it was a bit warm.

Part 1 of the Pine Mountain Scenic Trail - Highland Section walking from Jenkins to Whitesburg. Camped at the Indian Grave campsite. Water was a trickle downhill from the site. This track ends a bit before the Adena Spring shelter. Please excuse the gaps...my first try at recording a track with GAIA and my iPhone.

Part 2 of the Pine Mountain Scenic Trail - Highland Section walking from Jenkins to Whitesburg. This track pics up on early on Day 2 a bit before the Adena Spring shelter. Load up on water at Adena Spring . We camped at the Swindall Campsite at Box Rock and carried extra water from Adena Spring to get us through the night. This site has great views and is gravel so the bugs aren't a problem and sleeping without a tent is an option. We finished the trip on Day 3. There are a couple of wrong turns on this track: one near the Mayking radio tower (trail is in the back right corner behind the tower) and one at the intersection with the High Rock Loop Trail (turn right there).

June 28, 2015 - This was another wonderful hike led by Dave, this one blessed with beautiful clouds and nice folks Debbie, Eric, Judy, Missy, Brian, and Julia. GENERAL INFO about the Arnold Rim Trail Association guided sunset hikes to Cougar Rock: • Have a look at the map below. Click on the little icon that looks like a stack of paper. You may toggle back and forth between USGS, MapBox, and OpenLandscapeMap map layers. You may also expand the map to full screen by clicking the opposing arrows icon. • The sunset hikes to Cougar Rock (along a part of the Arnold Rim Trail) almost always led by Captain Dave, follow a loop of about 4 miles total, with about 8,00' of elevation gain. The hikes are typically scheduled on weekends, near the full moon, in the months of May through October. To learn specifically when the hikes are, please visit arnoldrimtrail.org and sign up to receive our emails. We do not share our email addresses and you may unsubscribe anytime. • Hikes depart from Valley View Drive and 5N78Y, a parking area that is not marked yet (as of July 2015). This parking area is exactly 1.4 miles from the intersection of Valley View Drive and Lakemont Drive in Arnold. Once you turn onto Valley View Drive from Lakemont Drive, stay on Valley View Drive for 1.4 miles. Be careful to stay on VVD, since it curves frequently during the first mile, the paved section. When Valley View Drive turns to dirt, travel 0.4 miles and the parking area will be on your right. Again, it is not yet marked. • You may download the .kml file of the hike, which will open into Google Earth. Also, download the .gpx file and load into your phone mapping app or other mapping device to follow this trail. As of July 2015, the side trail from the parking area to the Arnold Rim Trail is not yet signed. The Arnold Rim Trail Association is planning to install this signage, but until then use your mapping device, i.e. smart phone mapping app or Garmin, to follow the trail after you download the .gpx file.
