The Jake and Bull Mountain loop has a good variety of incline and decline in elevation. This hike has good views of nearby mountains, streams, ponds, and open meadows.
We will be hiking at a fast pace of 3 mph for the duration of the hike with a few stops for water/snacks.
It is recommended that you bring a pair of water shoes to change into for the 2 stream crossings towards the end of the hike. Both crossings are about 10 feet wide. One is ankle deep and the other is knee deep. We will stop to change shoes at each crossing.
There is a porta-potty at the trailhead.
If you plan to meet at the event, please be at the trailhead at 7:20 AM.
|How to Get There:|
North on 400, make a left on to 136, the very next right is on to 9e, then a left onto 9, then a right on 52 west of Dahlonega for ~ 4.6 miles, then turn right onto Nimblewill Church Road (there is an old, decrepit, and nearly falling down old convenience store called Grizzles on the corner). Drive less than five minutes to the Jack’s Run trailhead on the right.
