Join me for an early morning 13 mile counter clockwise hike on the beautiful Coosa Backcountry Trail, with side trips to Coosa Bald and Blood Mountain. We will start our hiking quest at Vogel State Park. Lots of hills, trees and views!
This is a strenuous hike and only for advanced hikers with recent D4 or D5 experience hiking in the mountains. This hike will be rewarding and should prove to be an adventurous day on the trail for those who are up to the challenge and would like to join us.
1. Itinerary is subject to change anytime at the discretion of the trip leader(s).
2. We will take breaks to allow the group to stay together, with MODERATE speed while we are moving.
3. The trip leader(s) reserves the right to consider participant's past history and to make the final determination for participation on this hike.
4. Hydration will be important. There will be a few water sources along the way, if you want to bring a filter.
5. Up to 2 well-behaved dogs, on a leash may be permitted if not too hot.
6. Arrive at 8:45 am, ready to hike. We will leave the parking lot to begin the hike at 9 am.
