The Arkaquah Trail hike is widely regarded to be one of the most popular, fun, challenging, and scenic in GA. Looking north from the overlooks, you can see Standing Indian Mtn 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!
It will be hot so bring gatorade/electrolytes and we will have plenty of breaks for water.
Participants hiking history is subject to review and approval by the trip leader(s). D5 or equivalent hiking experience is required for this hike.
