|Interested in joining me for a hike up and over ever popular Blood Mountain? No tourist route on this version - we'll climb right out of the Byron Herbert Reece parking lot for about 2 miles and gain around 1350 feet - Good Morning! |
After our "warm up" we'll descend the other side and hike out to picturesque Lake Winfield Scott for our lunch break. After a good long break and a little socializing, we'll head back along the beautiful Slaughter Creek Trail, then up the "easy side" of Blood Mountain to the top. After a good long last look from the summit, we'll gather the group and head back down to the parking lot.
Blood Mountain stands 4458' above sea level with 1516' feet of clean prominence. It is the highest peak on the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail.
On the drive home, we will stop at Danny's in Dahlonega for dinner (best prime rib in north GA!), so bring a few extra $$.
|How to Get There:|
From Dahlonega, take Hwy 60 north. At Stonepile gap, bear right, staying on 19/129. Proceed 13.6 miles and turn left into the Byron Herbert Reece parking area.
