Big Scaly is the mountain just below Standing Indian. This backpack is a loop of about 11 miles and has roughly 2,500 feet of elevation gain (and loss...see trail profile below). If you have not completed a D5 hike or backpack recently, expect to have some conversation with a trip leader prior to the event.
Thanks goes to Scott Kozlowski for this original write-up!
|How to Get There:|
Take I-85 N to I-985 N which turns into US 23/441 to Clayton GA. Pit stop at Chik Fil A! (For bathrooms and "to go" only - we do not plan to sit down and eat.) Then go West on US 76 about eight miles. Turn right on Persimmon Rd, near the volunteer fire department and sign for Tallulah River Campgrounds. Continue about 4.2 miles to left at Tallulah River Rd. This road will turn to gravel after a mile or so and leads thru gorge to Tate City. Follow to NC state line. Trailhead parking will come up soon on the left.
