Preachers Rock and Big Cedar Mountain via AT from Woody Gap 3.6 Mile hike; we will actually go a little past Preachers Rock to another overlook. Hike has some great views at the top and is rated as moderate, but does have 600+ ft of elevation gain with some rocky sections so some fitness, trekking poles, and good hiking shoes are recommended. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
Please Plan for appropriate Social Distancing, follow CDC Covid guidelines, and please do not attend if you are sick in any way. We will keep to average 2 mph pace so please plan on that range and sticking with the group.
Bring water for yourself, comfortable hiking shoes, and snacks if wanted. We will meet at the trailhead which is located off Rt. 60 North of Dahlonega, almost to Suches, GA. There is parking on both sides of the road and signage to mark Woody Gap/AT. Parking fills up quickly so recommend getting there a little early if you can.
GA-60, Dahlonega, GA 30533 (Woody Gap / Appalachian Trail in Google maps should get you there)
