What we're about

This group is for "active hikers who like to hike"! Although it is not recommended for beginner hikers, as most of the hikes will require maintaining a moderate to brisk pace with solid elevation gains. While the North Georgia trails (AT section hikes, Coosa, Amicalola Falls, Blood Mtn., Brasstown Bald, etc.) will be our main focus, we will also take our adventures to the beautiful trails in TN, SC, NC, etc. All members are encouraged to host their favorite hikes. Simply ask an Assistant Organizer for help posting a hike and go for it. If you enjoy the experience, we are always looking for Assistant Organizers to host hikes/events. This meetup belongs to the hikers, so enjoy!

In an effort to secure a safe and under control hiking environment, this group is now a "members only" group. This should not be a big deal, since there is no cost associated with joining. Additionally, please do not join this group unless you have real intentions to hike with us.

NOTE: ANY hiking group that does not want to spend a "lifetime" compiling data to do a hike that this group has already completed, is WELCOME to use ANY hiking information within this meetup group, including copying a hike verbatim. Life is too short to waste in front of a computer, especially when you can probably find the information easier from a group that has already completed a hike. Also, I assure you there are NO legal ramifications if you use our information to enjoy a trail. "We will take it as a compliment!" The trails are there for ALL to enjoy!

Thank You!

Happy Trails Forever!
