One of my favored "winter" hikes! Interested in joining me for a hike up and over ever popular Blood Mountain? No tourist route on this version - we'll climb right out of the Byron Herbert Reece parking lot for about 2 miles and gain around 1350 feet - that should get the pump going!
Blood Mountain stands 4458' above sea level with 1516' feet of clean prominence. It is the highest peak on the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail.
