Sunset/Hunters Moon moonlight camp at McDill Point >> Mnt Cheaha
October 12, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - October 13, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
We will meet and start this hike at the Cheaha Trail head at 1 pm and will Backpack 3.25 miles South along the Pinhoti trail to the McDill spur trail and to our destination at McDill Point.
During this outing we will enjoy a beautiful Sunset viewed from McDill Point and later we will enjoy the Gorgeous, and nearly full Hunters Moon. the Moon will be in its Waxing Gibbous stage (98% Full) on Saturday night Oct 12th but will be in its Full stage (Hunters Moon) on Sunday night Oct 13th.
Everyone attending MUST bring camping gear, tents or hammocks. and plenty of water, there are NO water sources along this section of the Pinhoti trail or McDill Point.
We will have to scavenge for firewood once there, however if anyone can pack a few pieces a firewood to bring along will be great, I will be packing a few pieces.
HEAD LAMPS ARE A MUST !!!,So be sure to bring one with and extra set of batteries.
The hike to and from McDill Point will be moderate/difficult because of incline changes.
There will be an optional lunch/libations afterwards on Sunday (TBD)
