Blood Mountain - Day hike

I'll be hiking Blood Mountain on the 11th and I'm looking for other who are interested. We'll be hiking a side trail from the trail head near the Walasi-yi Center and doing a loop to the top of the mountain.  We'll then take the AT down.  The total hiking mileage will be about 9 miles.  Lets meet at the Mansell park and ride at 800AM.  We can have lunch on top of the mountain.  If you want to meet me at the Mountain, let meet at the trail head at 930am.

 

Directions to the trail head:

 

Follow Highway 400 until it ends near Dahlonega, GA. Turn left towards downtown Dahlonega, at highway 60 (large intersection) turn right (you will see Walmart about .5 miles down the road). Keep following Highway 60 towards Blairsville, at the Indian Stone Pile fork Right onto Highway 19. Stay on Highway 19 until it dead ends at Turner’s Corner. Turn left and go to the top of the Mountain, you will see the Walasi-yi Center at the top.  Go 1/2 mile past the center and you'll see signs for a trail head on your left.  Turn left to enter the trail head parking area.

 

Thanks,

Dan

    This route is less difficult than the traditional route. Its an extra three miles total though.

    Dan, is this the strenuous route? Or is it not as hard as going straight up the mountain?
