Long Branch Loop Trail is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Blue Ridge, GA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
Perfect for a quick and easy hike with impatient kids away from the rat race.
It was very quiet and peaceful - not difficult nor was it busy. I walked with a local landowner who confirmed he has seen bears on the trail (rarely) but something to be aware of. Good for dogs and kids - the loop is two miles and easy to do a few times. Look for the chimney about a mile and a half, also good access to water for dogs.
Very easy trail, not breathe taking views, but lots of wildlife. We saw a snake slither across the path and were intrigued by the brick fireplace. Does anyone know the history behind it? Would definitely recommend for a leisurely hike for those not feeling super adventures or looking for something less strenuous than other hikes in the area.
An easy, short trail with no remarkable views but very peaceful.
Cold and raining but a great hike. The understory is so varied it is interesting. We passed one biker and a family starting out with dog. Rain won't stop us!
