The Arkaquah Trail hike is widely regarded to be one of the most popular, fun, challenging, and scenic in Georgia. Looking north from the overlooks, you can see Standing Indian Mountain and even parts of the Smokies as well. This is a 12-mile hike with some ups and downs, and fantastic views - lots of photo opportunities throughout the trail!
-Carpool Departure: 6:45 am Mansel Road Park & Ride on Georgia 400)
-This is NOT a beginner hike and if you don't have any recent D4/D5 experience we will have lots of questions for you. BUT, if you've done a recent D4 and think you might be ready to move up, this could be a great opportunity - so sign up and let's discuss. Again, this hike is a D5 and will be strenuous.
