2.8 mph pace to meet our target timeframe for this "in and out" 6 hour hike
1.4 mile 1076 foot ascent of Blue Mountain to begin hike
2800 foot total climb for the hike and 7% average grade
3.5 miles passing over several rock slides and through rocky areas to begin and finish hike
Fine views from Blue Mountain shelter at 4025 feet elevation
Blue is one of the five Georgia AT 4000 footers (you probably know Blood and Tray already)
|How to Get There:|
Here is a link to Google Maps that will take you to the trailhead at Unicoi Gap:
Plan to be ready to meet at 8:30am at the trail crossing.
The trailhead has ample parking but no privy or services.
The shelter at the top of the mountain has a compost privy 1.4 miles into our hike.
