The Pinhoti Trail is a 335-mile long National Recreation trail through Alabama and Georgia. The northern terminus is in north west Georgia, near the town of Blue Ridge, where it intersects with the Benton MacKaye Trail. The southern terminus is in east central Alabama at Flagg Mountain, near the town of Weogulfga, which is known for being the southernmost Appalachian mountain that rises above 1000 feet.
The Pinhoti Trail is the venue for the Pinhoti 100 mile Trail Run.
Started today at 7:28 am alabama time. Having issues with the spot but getting some tracking to go through at https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=1e0475ce4e93b4d29a&p=Pinhoti&hoursPast=0&showAll=yes
i will be recording a track each day on my watch which seems like the most reliable tracking method.
I’m trying to go after the self supported record starting in two days, in a potentially ill advised but nevertheless fun jaunt. Tracking here: https://us0-share.inreach.garmin.com/whereswillie

Congrats Willie! That was truly amazing! I had plans to go after this one self supported next November but after the massive miles you put up I think I will look elsewhere!
Starting Thursday, April 30th, 2020 I will be attempting to set a new supported FKT for the Pinhoti. I will begin at Flagg and proceed to the Northern Terminus at the BMT. My wife, Mallory Yawn, and my in-laws, Todd and Jamie Henderson will be providing support during my effort.
Live tracking will be provided at the link provided below. I will also use my watch to record a .gpx track. Upon successful completion, I will provide the gpx track for verification.
I was able to set a new Support FKT in 5 days 13 hrs 21 minutes. Im compiling everything and will sumbit data (gpx, photos, report) very shortly for official verification. In the meantime, heres a link to the activity in Strava.
