This backpacking trip starts at Unicoi Gap just north of Helen, GA. We will backpack 5.1 miles on the Appalachian Trail to the summit of Tray Mountain. Near the top of the summit, we will find a place to set up base camp and enjoy a cold-ish night sleeping under the stars. The views will be spectacular!
