This is a hike for advanced hikers. The hike is approximately 15 miles round trip with only a few rest breaks. We will start at Trackrock Gap (2280 ft), immediately climbing 1500 ft to Roost Ride. Following the ridge eastwards, we will pass Chimneytop Mtn (mile 4.4) to Brasstown Bald (mile 6.1; 4738 ft). We then descent the Jack Knob Trail to Hwy 180. After a short break, the entire group will retrace its steps back to the trailhead.
|How to Get There:|
From the Park & Ride we will go north on Georgia 400 to Dahlonega. Continue on US Hwy 19 North past Voget State Park, then take a right on State Road 180 East. Stay on 180 for 2.4 miles, turn left at Town Creek School Rd and after 2 miles turn right on Trackrock Church Rd. Take another right onto Trackrock Gap Rd. The parking lot at the trailhead is on the left.
