We will hike the Arkaquah trail to the observation deck on the summit of Georgia's highest mountain - Brasstown Bald. We will have lunch on the deck and return by the same route. This is a challenging trail with much sustained elevation gain, so please be in good physical condition and experienced with D5 rated hikes before signing up. We should return to the parking area well before dark, but please bring a flashlight or headlamp as a precaution.
|How to Get There:|
Directions to Track Rock Gap (Arkaquah Trailhead): From the Park & Ride we will go north on Georgia 400 to Dahlonega.

Stay on 180 for 2.4 miles, turn left at Town Creek School Rd and after 2 miles turn right on Trackrock Church Rd. Take another right onto Trackrock Gap Rd. The parking lot at the trailhead is on the left.
