Directions are pretty easy to 555.  From town (Main Street) take 64 like you're going to Cashiers and
about 2 miles down Hwy 64 you'll see a sign for Skyline Lodge and if you look real close, you'll see a
moose sitting on that sign drinking a martini!  This is Flat Mountain Road.  Take it and go about a mile
til you cross over a bridge where the road forks.  Go right.  You climb for another mile and about the
time the road levels out you'll see a sign on your left and an entrance to Flat Mountain Estates.  It's a
private dead end road...18 miles an hour please...that runs for about a mile.  555 is about .8 up on
the right.  
All are welcome!!
