Date Climbed: May 7, 2006


I cheated and took the easy way to the top ;) This was my first state highpoint! It was a very foggy day and so there was no view but I did enjoy touring the USFS Visitor Center at the top.

Flew into Atlanta and visited Georgia Aquarium on April 8. Drove to Brasstown Bald the next day. Climbed via the Jacks Knob Trail 5.8 miles round trip. Nobody on the trail. A lot of the people at the parking lot and at the museum on top. Very nice hike on a sunny day. A ranger unlocked a gate so that I could take a picture of the USGS benchmark. HP #7.

This was the second state highpoint for the day(TN,GA,SC). There was great views from the very nice observation deck.

I've made the easy, mostly paved path to the summit several times. Being up there after a big ice storm has to be my favorite time spent on the mountain top. The scenary is unique from any other time of the year, and I was the only one up there at the time.

Climbed from Jacks Gap to the parking area with my mom and my little cousin where we met the rest of our family. From there they all took the shuttle to the top while I walked up the path. It was cloudy at first but as we headed back down the clouds lifted and the view was great.

After a 2 1/2 day sprint from Springer to Unicoi Gap, I drove up. Unfortunately all clouded up and no views. Nice museum. I was rather nasty from the hike and my feet were killing me.

Doing an approach trail, such as Arkaquah Trail or Jacob's Knob make it a little more of a challenge. I did this on a clear spring day and could see all the way back to Atlanta from the summit.

Highpoint #21. This is probably one of the few two-day ascents of this mountain. We arrived a few minutes before midnight and left just afterwards, hoping to bag GA-SC-NC-TN-VA-KY in 24 hours.

I remember this being a beautiful trail. There really are great views from the top. I want to ride my bike to the top!

Steep walk to the top but the view was worth it. Lovely day with lots of sunshine and a slight breeze!

Very foggy/drizzly day. the rhododendrons near the summit were in blume. Oddly enough, we passed no one on the trail and there was not anyone at the observation deck at the summit.

Ran up and down 4 times striaght once training for a marathon. This was when we were visiting friends who live close by, in fact ran the Hogpen Hill climb in Helen, which is a race 12 miles straight up. Back in the 1990's, took my young daughters all the time. They loved the mist and fog on the trail, early mornings. Cheers.

Only headed to the parking lot for the TOUR DE GEORGIA bike race. (Lance finished third, I think.) Late April in Georgia and who'd have guessed that there'd be snow flurries all day? I wore my shorts and Tevas, but gave up my fleece to an ungrateful woman.

This mountain is best climbed by bike (or running alongside Lance).

Yes I'm signing the register twice! After leaving the summit and getting ~40 miles toward Atlanta, I realized that my sunglasses were still on Georgia's highest point. Even though they're "cheapos", I always have a hard time finding ones that don't make me look like a bug. Begrudgingly, I drove back up as darkness was fast approaching. Happy to find the lower gate still open, I jogged up through the rain to find my glasses exactly where I thought they would be!
