Hike The North Georgia Mountains!

199008-300x187If you love to hike then you do not want to miss out North Georgia’s mountainous wonders.  Just 2 hours north of Atlanta you’ll find some of the most renowned hiking trails. One must-visit is Springer Mountain in Fannin County. It offers a gentle and rolling start to the hike through a hardwood forest, and its 3,780-foot summit gives you stunning views of the surrounding mountains as well.  The peaks along the Appalachian Trail are breathtaking to say the least.  Another really awesome view is that of ever popular Blood Mountain which is the trails highest peak in Georgia (4,456 feet to be exact) and the sixth-tallest mountain in the state. The climb is difficult but worth the panoramic views of Brasstown Bald and Lake Burton (Rabun County).  Here’s a fun fact:  If you hike to Blood Mountain from Neels Gap, you’ll cross under the stone arch at Walasi-Yi Center, the only place where the Appalachian trail passes through a manmade structure. Pretty cool-huh?

Finally, make time to see the majestic Long Creek Falls, the 50-foot drop of water that flows even in the dead of summer. Insiders say the easy-to-moderate climb is best undertaken on a weekday, because crowds descend on weekends.

So what are you waiting for?  Grab your hiking boots and gear and visit North Georgia this weekend!
