Trail Fest Hike


Sunday afternoon we'll offer an optional scenic AT Group Hike, from the GA-60 trailhead at Woody Gap to the spectacular "Preacher's Rock" lookout and back - about a 3-hour total excursion from Dahlonega, with about 2 miles of relatively easy hiking.  If you'd like to join us for this, meet us (Stacey & Jerry) at the Dahlonega Visitor's Center 3:00 PM for our carpool caravan (driving about 10 miles north of Dahlonega via GA-60)  to the parking lot/trailhead. Those choosing to hike farther may do so with an optional extension beyond Preacher's Rock about 6 more miles to lovely Dockery Lake (at a leisurely pace, via the AT and the Dockery Lake Trail).  It's easy to set up a vehicle shuttle for this if you're interested in the extended hike in lieu of returning from Preacher's Rock to Woody Gap with our main hiking group, we'll help faciliatate at that time.).
