Join me for a pleasant day of hiking on the beautiful 13.7 mile Coosa Backcountry Trail starting at Vogel State Park. Lots of hills and views with the leaves down for the winter.
This is a strenuous trail and only those in excellent physical condition should participate. This hike is recommended for hikers with previous long distance hikes of 10 or more miles in the mountains.
We will take some brief water breaks along the way and a lunch break around the halfway point of the hike.
|How to Get There:|
Take GA 400/US 19 north to Dahlonega. We will make a pit stop in Dahlonega at the McDonald's there. It will be on your left on US 19. Then take US 19 north to where it joins US 129 at Turners Corner. Continue north on US 19/129 for 11 miles to Vogel State Park.
