Hike along the Byron Herbert Reece Trail and climb atop Blood Mountain - an iconic peak along the Appalachian Trail! This is a moderate rated hike that totals 4.4 miles in length. The views from atop the mountain are stunning - especially at this time of year - which should be just about peak time for fall foliage!
Follow renowned guide/naturalist/storyteller Bob Gabrielsen and Appalachian Wilderness Guides staff on a trek up the mountain as we spin yarns of the the ghosts and magical Cherokee spirits (said to still live up on the mountain) as you enjoy the scenery on this weekend before Halloween!
After the hike - we'll sit around a campfire near the trail head, sip some hot, fresh mountain cider and socialize!
We'll "Meetup" at nearby Vogel State Park - then drive to the trail head "caravan" style.
Bring a cold lunch, water, a camera, proper clothing and footwear. Further details and the location of our "Cider Social" will be e-mailed to those who RSVP for this trip - but please feel free to contact us at [masked] at any time!
