Georgia AT Section #4 Woody Gap to Neels Gap Second Hike

 

This hike will be a (12) mile This is one of my favorite parts of the AT in Georgia. We will be hiking up the back side of Blood Mt. It is over 1,300 feet in elevation gain that will start at Woody Gap and does not stop till you get on top of Blood Mt 2.4 miles . I don't know of any way to make this a shorter hike.?? We will need to start one hours earlier.

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). Our Goal is to let people that don't get to enjoy the trails, have a chance to get out and see the beauty that we enjoy.

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 mansell, 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

    It was such a beautiful day Saturday, it was wonderful spending the day with all of you! I was in awe of the generosity of this group, it speaks volumes about the quality of people who were with us and what makes the GAG community special as well as fun! Just thought you might like to know, Richard sent a short text a minute ago, "Everything good. Driving home now."

    Really enjoyed this hike, which was the most challenging AT hike so far because of distance and shuttling (could have been done better but we did the best we could with short notice). Thanks, Jennifer, for keeping it going! It was a beautiful day with awesome Spring color and views.

    I'll be driving a 1990 Mustang convertible with the top down and the music up. It seats two or three comfortably (the back seat is kind of small for two people). Because I am coming from Lawrenceville it would suit me fine to meet at the 985 Buford park and ride with anyone who wants to ride along. We would join the group at the Walmart in Dahlonegah. Post here, text, or call[masked] if you are interested.

      yes the park and ride is where we meet RC. if you're coming from Alpharetta, it would save you some driving if you met us at highway 400. that's exit 14 if you're driving north on 400

      April 25, 2014

    • Jim J.

      or if you want to meet us at the park and ride at 985, will be leaving there at 8
