This is an out and back trekking to Brasstown Bald, the highest summit in Georgia standing at 4,784 feet. On a clear day we’ll have panoramic breathtaking views from four surrounding states.
We’ll meet and start from the parking lot on GA-180 at the intersection of Jacks Knob trail. Our trekking includes Jacks Knob trail, a section of Arkaquah trail, and the paved Brasstown Bald trail. We’ll take our snack and lunch breaks along our way depending on the overall conditions.
The event duration does NOT include our travelling/ driving time. Please arrive 10 minutes before our starting time. Our duration time is an educated estimate, so we need to have some flexibility.
<<< Important Notes >>>
Please only register if you are comfortable going long distance at a pace averaging 2.5 mph in the remote mountains environment, and have solid D5 experience. A good reference is you can comfortably finish Kennesaw 10 in 4 hours.
If your recent experience is not from the club, please include it in a note when you register, or email TL; otherwise you will be moved to the waiting list for the safety of everyone. We encourage our members to actively participate with joyful experience, and most importantly to stay healthy and safe at the end of our event.
