Basin Creek Trail (Doughton Park)
|:||Main Page :||:|
This trail features 19 stream crossings on the way to the cabin. Watch weather reports for rainfall in the period 24 hours prior to the hike start. Even moderate rainfalls can eventually add up to creek levels that are difficult to traverse.
This is a true hidden gem that few venture; the backcountry's proximity to Stone Mountain State Park means this park gets relatively limited amounts of hiking traffic.
This hike is strenuous and the creek crossings are boulder hops, slips and falls are quite common so you need your balance A-game, but those that take up the challenge are amply rewarded.
