It's going to be cold in the North Georgia mountains this weekend, so we'd like to hike mid-morning in town.
We will start at Burnt Hickory and go up and over Little K and then up and over Big K to the Visitor Center.  After a fairly short (bio) break we will go back up and over Big K and then up and over Little K to the Burnt Hickory parking lot.
There will be a lead and a sweep for this hike.
We will hike at an overall pace of around 2.5.  If you do not have recent high end D3 or D4 experience this hike night not be for you.  If in doubt please contact the trip leaders.
We will stop for a bio break and to add water to our containers, if needed at the visitor center.
Don't forget your park pass!!!
