Here's your chance to see one of the most beautiful views of fall foliage in the state of Georgia !
Hike a 3 mile moderate rated (that's total mileage - round trip)trail to the summit of Georgia's second highest peak to enjoy a beautiful view of fall scenery !
Rabun Bald is 4,696 feet high. An observation tower on the summit provides hikers with what many people believe is the most spectacular view from any one point in the Georgia mountains. Into the Georgia and South Carolina Piedmont, views on clear days extend for more than 100 miles. In other directions, the views of the Blue Ridge, Nantahala, Cowee, and Great Smoky mountains are outstanding.
Rabun Bald's main ridgeline is the Eastern Continental Divide, dividing waters draining northward into the Tennessee/Mississippi Gulf system from those draining southward to the Atlantic Ocean.
We will "Meet-up" at the famous "Dillard House" Restaurant / Inn in Dillard, GA - then caravan and / or carpool to the trailhead - then back to that spot AFTER the hike. We often eat there together after the hike !
