Georgia AT Section #2 Hightower to Gooch Gap

RSVP open 60 days before event

Please Read This Closely:

These hikes usually fill up Fast: Please make sure you know you are going before you RSVP

This will be a 9 mile hike.

These will be difficult hikes, even if we go slow. If you are not capable of doing long hikes, do NOT attempt these trips.

These will be slow hikes ( EXPECT SLOW).

If you are an experienced hiker, I would ask that you keep within the group to help with the new hikers.

We will be driving miles down dirt forest service roads that are very rough and dusty.

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 Exit 4, 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.

    How many who are meeting at Mansell are willing to drive to trailhead?

    Good point RC. I'm headed to I985 P&R 8AM to pool up. Thanks.

  • Sharon F.

    We've got a lot of people wanting to meet at Mansell. We'll need more drivers and if we don't have enough "dirt friendly" vehicles maybe we can meet up with RC's group and others in Dahlonega and switch around. I'll be driving a Pathfinder (not my Prius). Anyone else?
    RC, should we plan to leave Mansell at 8:00am?

    I'm looking for carpool options, and have a car that sucks for off road. Coming from midtown. Anyone?

    October 15, 2013

    • Beth H

      I'm coming from in town too. You might want to meet us at Mansell. See Sharon's post below.

      So who's going to Mansell with a dirt friendly vehicle? Room on board?

    Putting together a carpool from Ga400 side of town, Mansell Park & Ride or perhaps the Windward Park & Ride at exit 11. Anyone interested?

    October 15, 2013

  • Debbie L

    Does anyone live south of Atlanta near Newnan and if so do you want to car pool?

    October 15, 2013

  • Debbie L

    RC - will there be another carpool meeting place such as the Walmart in Dalonega like we did last time?
