Join us as we hike this enjoyable section of the Georgia AT.
We will start at Woody Gap where plenty of parking is available as well as a comfortable set of pit toilets. Up we will go at a quick pace to our first stop, Preachers Rock. A quick stop to enjoy the views followed by some welcome downhill trekking for about 2 miles until we start the rolling ascent that eventually brings us to Blood Mountain. This will be our lunch spot. After lunch we will retrace our steps back to our waiting cars.
We will be maintaining a quick pace on this hike. This hike is only suitable to you if you can maintain an average speed approaching 3 mph over this long trek. We will be keeping the group together.
This is a difficult D5 hike, recent D5 experience is required to join the fun.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet at the trailhead at 8:15.
