Let's meet at the Park-n-Ride in Buford. Should get to the trailhead around 10AM. Driving distance from the park-n-ride to the trailhead is about 110 miles.
Hike AT trail to Wayah Bald. Approximately 8.6 to 9.0 miles round trip. Trail is mostly uphill for the first two miles. Then some up and down with 2-3 nice views before the Bald. Panoramic view on the Bald.
Note:We will be hiking at about 2 mph or slightly faster. If you cannot hike at this pace, the hike is not for you. Sunset is at approximately 6:45PM, plan to be off the trail by 5PM and still have a time buffer before dark. Do not want to hike in the dark.
Bring a lunch, trail mix, snacks, water.
Hiking boots, hiking poles, rain gear. If you have a head light, pack it as a precaution. Or a small flash light. I will have a head light and two small flash lights. Weather forecast will change, looking at sunny, low 30's to mid 50s. So wear layers if the forecast holds true. Hike will be postponed or cancelled due to inclement weather.
After hike dinner in Clayton. A couple options are Mama G's and Universal Joint.
