Join us...for an early morning 16+ mile hike on the beautiful 13.7 mile Coosa Backcountry Trail, with an additional 3 mile hike to Blood Mountain and back. We will start our hiking quest at Vogel State Park. Lots of hills, trees, roots, rocks, and views! It will not be easy!
This is a strenuous hike and only open to advanced hikers with recent experience of hiking 12 or more miles in the mountains, or something that can equate to that. We will be trying to maintain at least a 3 mph hiking pace. However, it will be well worth it and should prove to be an adventurous day on the trail for those who are up to the challenge / workout!
1. Itinerary is subject to change anytime at the discretion of the trip leader(s).
2. Because of the time and distance, our breaks will be minimum.
3. The trip leader(s) reserves the right to consider participant's past history and to make the final determination for participation on this hike.
