Three Forks

About The Trail: This is an easy yet scenic loop trail covering about eight miles in the Blue Ridge Mountains. No special equipment is needed, but do bring hiking shoes, lunch, water, some snacks, and some stories to share! Level/Pace is intermediate (meaning you can walk at 3 miles an hour and not hold the group up), so experienced hikers only for this trip. And as Steve and others always request: no kids or pets please.

Notes: Budget about 2+ hours for this hike. Distance = eight miles. Rating = easy. Please bring water and a snack or lunch. No water crossings. No special equipment needed.

Where To Meet: Please meet at the trailhead, which is on FS 58 halfway up the mountain between Doublehead Gap and FS 42 by 11:25am so we can start hiking at 11:30.

Carpool Info - Updated On 11/29: Andy is running one carpool from Gwinnett and I will run one carpool from Alpharetta. Simply send either of us an email that you would like to ride with that group by Saturday night before the event so we can reserve your spot.

For my group, please meet in the parking lot to the far left of the Best Buy near North Point Mall (Best Buy is located at the intersection of Haynes Bridge Road and Exit 9 off of 400) by 9:15am. We will leave promptly at 9:30. FYI, I drive a white Toyota Sequoia. For planning purposes, expect to be back in the Atlanta area sometime around 5pm. See you on the trail!

    Tossed and turned the night away so now I'm tired. Hate to cancel because I was looking forward to the trip but I'm very tired and won't be much fun.

      It's a big parking lot - lets pick an area to all meet. How about near the Burger King? Or do you want to let us know when you get there?
