Hiking in the Northeast Georgia Mountains
The most unique thing about our location is our proximity to the world famous Appalachian Trail and the surrounding wilderness area of the Chattahoochee National Forest. We are sandwiched between and bordered by the Blood Mountain Wilderness Area and the Raven Cliffs Wilderness Area.
Some of our cabins are only a one hundred yard footpath from the Appalachian Trail, which extends over 2000 miles from Georgia to Maine, over the highest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. A 2½ mile walk on the Appalachian Trail will take you to the top of Blood Mountain, the highest point on the trail in Georgia, and one of the most scenic sites in Georgia.
Consider taking a walk on the legendary Appalachian Trail via the historic Walasi-Yi Center at Neels Gap, which is less than a quarter mile from us. It’s the only place where the 2,189- mile-long trail passes through a man-made structure. If staying in a cabin, we have a walking trail that will take you straight to the Appalachian Trail. www.appalachiantrail.org
