Georgia AT Section #5 Neels Gap to Hogpen

All of the AT events open 60 days before event

Please Read This Closely:

These hikes usually fill up Fast: Please make sure you know you are going before you RSVP

This hike will start at Neels Gap and cross over to Hogpen Gap

This hike will be a (6.9) mile This is another one of my favorite parts of the AT in Georgia.This section has servial beatfull overlook views.

This will be a VERY difficult hike, even if we go slow. If you are not capable of doing long hikes with elevation gains over 1,300 feet do NOT attempt this trip.

These will be slow hikes ( EXPECT SLOW).

If you are an experienced hiker, I would ask that you keep within the group to help with the new hikers.

Bring a lunch, trail mix, snacks, CHOCOLATE, and  PLENTY of water or Gatorade.

Be sure to bring Hiking poles, rain gear just in case it rains never know about the weather

We're meeting at Exit 4, to give people a chance to carpool, to save the expense and time. Normally the cost is computed by total mileage of trip, divided by mpg of vehicle driven and then divided between riders. Some clubs use .32 per mile, but regardless it‘s cheaper to carpool than to drive yourself. PLEASE help your driver with gas expenses on the trip. If you want to place yourself in a carpool ahead of meeting, just make a comment on this event web page, and I’m sure one of the driver’s will save a place for you. We’ve never left anyone behind due to lack of carpooling space

My number if you need to call [masked]

    Hi RC,
    When I got home from work today, the water from the refrigerator was spraying all over. Apparently, my cat got behind the refrigerator and was trying to get out so she clawed the water line, tearing it. She was stuck behind the refrigerator and needless to say, died from the cold water and shock. After I got back from the vet, I had to clean up the water from the kitchen. My other cat is desperately looking for his playmate. Because of these events, I have to cancel. I need to comfort my cat, as they were together a long time. Sorry, Nancy

    Does anyone know the limit on how many people can attend this hike? I think I am number 25 on the list.

    • Bill

      Jason, 25 is the limit for this event.

      December 30, 2013

    • Jason

      It says that I am still on the waiting list. Is this incorrect?

      December 30, 2013
