Gold Rush Stone Mountain - 5 to 7 miles +/- Strenuous.
We will hike to the Famous Gold Mine to explore the area and look for gold.
This is where Richard Sidden got his gold for his wife's wedding band.
Please do not expect to see much gold activity in this area. Over the years the shafts have caved in and all that remains is some shallow pits.
We also plan to see two other graveyards and some remains of some moonshine stills on the way.
WARNING! Gold fever has a very strange effect on people. Your best friend can turn on you in a second. Please do not bring knives on guns on this hike.
This is NOT your usual type of hike at all because some of this is OFF the beaten path.
If you enjoy nice marked trails please pick another hike.
Do not forget that I do not just lead hikes but true unforgettable adventures.
Please wear hiking boots/shoes or a good pair of sneakers.
I do highly recommend that you bring a walking stick or poles.
Bring your backpack or something to carry your food, snacks and water in. Make sure you have enough water or other drinks with you. Bring rain gear just in case of rain.
