Tray Mountain (elev. 4,430) is the second highest point on the Georgia AT, just 31 feet shy of Blood Mountain. Originally called Trail Mountain, some believe it was named that because of the numerous trails leading to the summit that the Cherokees used to climb in order to identify enemy campfires from the top. Tray Mountain's summit offers spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding Georgia mountains including Yonah, Brasstown, Currahee, and Rabun.
From the Unicoi Gap parking lot, we will hike 5.1 miles to the top of Tray Mountain on the AT and then return the same way for a total of 10.2 miles for the day. The total round-trip elevation gain will be around 3,500 feet.
