|We'll start at Bryon Reece Parking, hiking up the AT to the summit of Blood
Mtn. After a long and steep descent to Vogel State Park, we then hop on
the Coosa Backcountry Loop. Along the way we'll summit Coosa Bald
(4280') and then Slaughter Mountain (4338').
Rather than returning to Blood Mtn, we will turn right at the AT (again) and follow the trail to Jarred Gap Trail then to Lake Winfield Scott. After a snack break, head back along the Slaughter Creek Trail to the summit of Blood Mountain (4458') and back to our cars.
This a solid 26.4 miler with 7300 ft elevation gain.
As many of you
know, the Coosa Backcountry Loop is a strenuous trail. Be sure you are up
to a 20+ mile hike with some extended climbs at a steady pace and only
short stops for water.
|How to Get There:|
