I am interested in solo hiking the Foothills Trail in South Carolina, US this summer -- maybe not all of it, but ideally multiple days worth.
Unfortunately, I'm not really experienced enough to camp out every night; although I've been long distance walking before, the trail alternated between wilderness and towns and I was never truly roughing it. Also, after gaining weight and getting too little exercise during the pandemic lockdown, carrying a heavy pack all day feels unwise.
So, I'd like to stay in inns or lodges or AirBNBs each night and shuttle as needed. From what I can tell.... this isn't really possible and my plans are unreasonable.
Is this assessment correct, or is there some creative way to do what I'm trying to do? Alternatively, is there some alternative in the Southeastern US where a version of my plan is workable?
