Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
|This hike has a little of everything... There are 8-10 waterfalls along the route, a few open fields with wildflowers, clear mountain streams, lush coves, valleys, ridges, the highest point on the Georgia AT - Blood Mountain, and maybe more.|
I wanted to visit Blood Mountain, but wanted a much more scenic, unique, an interesting way of getting there than the normal heavily used trails that are typical. So even if you've visited Blood Mountain before, this will give you a whole new perspective of the area.
|How to Get There:|
|Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):||120Mile(s)|
|Carpool Departure Time:||7:30 am|
|Carpool Location:||Log in for location|
|Carpool Directions:||Log in for directions|
|Carpool Cost:||Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $48.00 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.|
Dogs are allowed on the hike as long as they can be trusted off leash. This is because with the types of unmaintained trails (possibly no trails) we will be hiking it's impossible to keep a dog on a leash. And your dog must be able to complete a hike of this nature.|
