Enjoy a morning on the trail as we hike a remote section of the Appalachian Trail from Hogpen Gap south to Cowrock Mountain. We';; actually cover two mountains - we'll go up and over Justus Mountain, descend into Tesnatee Gap, then head up Cowrock Mountain and catch some great views from its summit.

We'll take some time on top of Cowrock mountain to enjoy the view and a snack (if you brought one).

Here is a site that has information on our STARTING LOCATION (but they are hiking North 29 miles, not South like we will):

What to bring
LOTS of water (none available)
Comfy, sturdy shoes
snack

You might also want trekking poles, a first aid kit, and dress in layers so you don't sweat out (if you wear heavy layers you will sweat when we climb, and then get cold when we stop!).

Important to know
We'll carpool from Mustard Seed Center at 7:30a sharp - or you can meet us at the trailhead at 9:00a (Hogpen Gap will show up in most GPSs - it is located along Richard B Russell Scenic Highway west of Helen, GA (near Raven Cliff Falls).
My number is[masked] if you have trouble, but there is no guarantee I will have reception, so please plan plenty of time to arrive by 9:00a.
