Georgia AT Section #8 Unicoi Gap to Tray Gap

We will be hiking the Georgia section of the AT. We will be doing these in 10 different hikes. This hike we will start atUnicoi Gap and Hike to Tray Gap

This will be a 5 mile hike. I usually hike at a fast pace but will slow down on these to allow those that want to get the Georgia section completed to be able to do them (around 2mph).

Even though we are only hiking 5 miles we will start at 3000 feet elevation and climb to around 4400 feet. this will be a DIFFICULT 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). Our Goal is to let people that don't get to enjoy the trails, have a chance to get out and see the beauty that we enjoy.

If you are an experienced hiker, I would ask that you keep within the group to help with the new hikers. Tell your stories... talk about gear... help them figure out what it took all of us old timers years to figure out.

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 will carpool from Mansell to Tray Gap, leave half the cars at Tray and drive Down to Unicoi Gap after we hike up to Tray Gap we will then shuttle back to Unicoi

We're meeting at Mansell, 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

My phone number if anyone need to call me. [masked]
