What you'll do

The trail head is a 15 minute drive to St. Florian. We will begin the trail at least 4 hours before sunset to give you ample time to hike, explore, and get back before dark. We will be exploring Shoals Creek Preserve which is a protected wildlife area with waterfalls, local fauna, and sometimes local people! Depending on your skill level the trail can be between 2.5 and 6 miles, whichever you prefer because it is a loop trail shaped like a figure 8. You can make it shorter or longer. There are many hills and rocky terrain, so this may not be good for a beginner hiker. I am equipped with a trail map that shows our location at all times so you can check in with me any time you need an update or download the app before we leave my place. I am happy to take photos of you when we get to some of the scenic points. The beauty is outstanding! Bring a snack or a lunch and I’ll be happy to carry it for you in my pack. This is one of the most unique trails in the Shoals!

Bella

I am an avid hiker and camper who knows the Shoals area nature trails very well. I am equipped with all the supplies we need and can make a hike fun and peaceful for you to enjoy some time in nature. I have hiked the Appalachian Trail for 17 days straight and covered the state of Georgia in my travels which is some of the toughest hiking on the entire AT. I am a very calm person and can let you hike your own hike a few paces ahead or behind if that’s what works best for you. I believe it’s important to experience nature and by exploring this trail hopefully we can make your trip memorable.

What's included

Drinks
Water for the hike, 2 bottles per person.
Transportation
15 minute ride to the hike and 15 minute ride back to my property.
Equipment
Hiking pack: I will carry all the supplies we need in my pack to make your hike more enjoyable!

Where you'll be

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 13 and up can attend. If you have anxiety about being deep in the woods with no phone service, this is not the best trail for you to go on. This trail is beautiful but remote, and access is limited.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

If this is your first trail hike it is good to know that we can take as many breaks as you need and there is no time limit to nature except the dark! Good shoes and a good attitude will go a long way.
