James E. Edmonds Backcountry Trail – Georgia!

April 14, 2009 at 10:37 am 2 comments

Robin and I drove up to Black Rock Mountain State Park in Clayton, GA yesterday to dayhike the James E Edmonds Backcountry Trail. The trail is a 7.2 mile loop and hit 3 points on the Summit Cheese list including Scruggs Knob, Marsen Knob, and Lookoff Mountain. On the way we stopped off at Wendy’s in Clayton to grab a bag of Jr. Cheeseburgers for our summits. This was a very fun trip thanks to the addition of the burgers and we were treated to a superb view of the valley below from the Lookoff overlook. Unfortunately, I irritated my “runner’s knee” (otherwise known as Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome) but I have a list of exercises to try and help reduce the flare-ups.
