One of my favored winter hikes! Interested in joining me for a hike up and over ever popular Blood Mountain? No tourist route on this version - we'll climb right out of the Byron Herbert Reece parking lot for about 2 miles and gain around 1350 feet - that should get the pump going!
Blood Mountain stands 4458' above sea level with 1516' feet of clean prominence. It is the highest peak on the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail.
On the drive home, we may stop for dinner, so bring a few extra $$.
|How to Get There:|
Take I-85/I-985 via Gainesville to Exit 24 and follow Hwy 129/ Hwy11 to Cleveland. Continue on 11 (which turns into Hwy 19) to Neels Gap and turn left into the Byron Herbert Reece parking area.
