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
