Ok, outdoor lovers looking for a real Sunset/Moonrise Bonanza hike packed with old and new hiking buddies! Please, listen up! This StairMaster mountain trail is not for beginners. We will pace ourselves & take several water breaks during the ascent to the top. Partly cloudiness will add texture and color brilliance to our already Incredible observation!!! Friends, this experience will be unforgettable, forevermore!!
The Blood Mountain trail is part of the totally awesome (AT) Appalachian Trail (AT's Tallest Point, in Georgia). You will experience your back-packed magnificent SunSet Dinner - on top of Georgia (6th tallest Mtn. in Georgia). 9 minutes later, we will witness a Breathtaking Full MoonRise on the EAST side of the mountain.

Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 14. Please be aware that we will be moving members above 14 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times. People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.
