HikingGreat!

The GPS coordinates to the trailhead were spot on despite me questioning the accuracy after almost eight miles on the forest service road. Thank you to whomever posted them and Google maps. As far as the trail, my wife and I hiked the trail with our 1 year old and dog. The views are limited at the top due to the amount of foliage; however for us it was worth the time. Take a lunch, sign the register, and enjoy the day.

HikingBlowdownGreat!

This was a really enjoyable easy-to-moderate hike. Preachers rock was definitely crowded but the other vista was almost empty. We’ll definitely do this one again with friends.

CampingBugsGreat!Rocky

This was a super intense hike! We started at Woody Gap and decided to make it a weekend long trip by stopping to camp at the lowest point and then again at the Blood Mt peak. There are a lot of ups and downs which can get frustrating because you feel like you’re loosing all of the work you put into those steep inclines. Even though elevation gain is a bit over 2,000, you’re ultimately climbing significantly more. Additionally the descent from Blood Mt is incredibly steep and hard on the knees. Very rocky so don’t go on a rainy day. We got a bit confused near the base after our descent and ended up hiking to the Byron Reece Trailhead Parking lot instead of Neel’s gap. By the end of the trip we somehow clocked about 14.5 miles instead of the 11 we expected. Otherwise, the views were spectacular and camping at the peak was incredible. We ate dinner and breakfast on the lookout rock.

Very nice trail. Wonderful stream that you walk beside for a few miles (Cascade Branch?). However you do need to beware the spiders on the first leg. Nasty looking big guy. I brushed one off my husband's shoulder as it has heading for his ear! Stayed at Old Sawmill campsite. Very nice with a wonderful stream for water. However didn't realize we needed a tenting permit ! Oops. Will be going to pay up on our way out today.

Some nice views from the west side of the loop. The east side was just ok. Little more challenging than I expected. Extremely varied terrain. Looks like there could be some potentially difficult stream crossings if there had been rain. Be ready for a workout. The up and down and steepness make it seem like there’s a lot more elevation change than I planned for. Great workout though and if you go rigat the trailhead you get to finish with a great view in addition to having some good views during some of the more difficult climbs. Ended up clocking about 9 miles and 2k of elevation gain

Beautiful hike to Emery Creek Falls. We hiked just about 7 miles (total in & out) with 14 creek crosses each way. Plan on getting your feet wet. Hiking poles a must. Make sure you keep going on the trail to the right of the falls to view the upper tier.

Nice trail. Start of the red blaze trail is poorly marked and wet. Saw many wild pigs. The canyons are gorgeous. Might have been better to walk the loop backwards. Then you could have seen the canyon first and finish up with the hike.

HikingBugsGreat!

Went from Tray to Dicks and back over 9/19-20. Weather was perfect fall like weather! Lot of inclines, up and down. Around 7 miles in, there is one section thats about .8 long and and you ascend 900 ft. So definitely gets your heart going. And then down the other side. Several others similar but not as challenging. Trails in great shape. Good wild flowers along several areas. Not much to see but in one or 2 spots for distance viewing. Nice hike through the woods. No shelter at the end near Dicks like the map shows, least didnt find one so just camped close to the water source there. Some crazy owl decided to park right above my tent and start hooting just as I was about to sleep. And went on for an hour, randomly hooting. So couldn't fall asleep waiting for the next hoot! lol. Finally he stopped. Quiet in the area. Not a lot of activity after that. Some skeetos were around but it had rained a lot recently so expected.

Fantastic way to link up two of the best trails in the southeast. A few nice lookouts, yet nothing spectacularly out of the norm for North Ga. It was interesting getting my sedan up the forest roads, but fairly doable with good weather.

Nice, moderate difficulty trail. Did it in 4 hours or so with my dog. Very few people. Trail in pretty good shape although some rocky slopes in sections. Lovely stream that parallels the trail in several spots.

Very challenging! Beautiful, super fun, didn’t really see any wildlife, made it to the shelters relatively easy, watch the water signs! They’re deceptive!

Rice Camp Trail maintenance opened the trail this month of significant downfalls and growth.

So well marked! Great pace and diverse terrain- worth making the loop in order to see all the camp grounds and views. Dog friendly and a good calorie burner!

HikingGreat!

Awesome half day walk with our hiking buddy. Only 7 miles. Forgot to end the trip before we drove away! No big summit or view. Just a nice walk in the woods without severe elevation change.
