Fall Foliage Hike - Rabun Bald, GA

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 !

PLEASE BE ON TIME FOR THE HIKE. WE WILL ONLY WAIT 15 MINUTES FOR ANY LATE-COMERS. AND

YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT HAVE CELL PHONE RECEPTION CLOSE TO THE PARK - OR DURING YOUR HIKE - AND YOUR ORGANIZER WAITING AT THE PARK WILL PROBABLY NOT HAVE ANY CELL RECEPTION !

      Hey Keisha was your friend from Taiwan? I think you all left early and did not stay for lunch at the Dilliard house. Great meeting y'all.

    If you haven't been to Rabun Bald, you should go. The views are awesome. Dilliard House after was delicious. And, of course, Bob had lots of great stories as usual. Had a great time. Enjoyed meeting new people and reconnecting with those I've hiked with before.

    Hey Bart ! Like the trip description says - and the directions (to the Dillard House) say ... we ARE meeting at the Dillard House :) . We will then caravan from there to the trailhead about 20 minutes away. ANY MEAL AT THE DILLARD HOUSE IS UNBELIEVABLE and many each year that attend this meetup will go up there Friday - stay the night - have breakfast - then walk out into the parking lot for the Meetup. USUALLY - a lot of folks will hear my desciptions of the meals there - and join me to eat AFTER the hike. Not too hard of a hike - but weather can vary crazy from day to day - so be aware to bring poncho and some extra clothes in car just in case you want them on that morn.

    Bob, I assume we are meeting at the Dillard house? Are we meeting for breakfast or dinner or any other details of what to bring. Probably not too much for a 3 mile hike. Thanks
