Come enjoy the winters quiet solitude.  

The trails at Jake and Bull Mountain are for hikers, cyclists, and horses, but should be relatively empty for a week day hike.   The trail grade is gentle and most uphills have curving switchbacks.  

I recently travelled these trails and found them easy to follow.  The pace will be between 2.5 and 3.0mph.  Please sign up only if you know you can maintain that pace.

There are streams to cross, but if the weather is too cold or too deep, we will re-route the hike to drier trails.  If it isn't too deep, we will cross - so you will need to prepare your mind for a wet foot crossing.

There is a porta-potty at the trailhead.

Trailhead by 10am.  Finish hike by 2pm.  Back to carpool by 3pm.



Required Items to Bring:

Lunch, beverage.

Water shoes.

Layered clothing.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Hiking poles are entirely optional.

Change of footwear (trails could be muddy if it has recently rained).  Positive attitude.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

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.

Carpool Cost: Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $48.00 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.
