FS 42. Leave your gear in the car. Walk up Springer .9 sign in take pictures, go back to car and get gear and walk to Maine.

dont leave your at 42 for the time length of a thru hike. and i only say this in case you don't know, FS stands for forestry service, its an improved gravel road. no need for 4x4 but i wouldn't do it in a bmw

Nothing wrong with an out and back. You may be surprised at how much a 16 mile shuttle will cost.

I ran a Honda civic all over the FS roads in GA including FS 42 a week after a hurricane, the roads were fine but there were a few trees that partially blocked the roads. Lot to be said for doing a key swap with someone.

Woody Gap just east of Suches, Georgia. Much easier to get to by car. :)
