islandborn11One of the best highpoint gift shops Ive seen  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010


Had planned on making a real hike out of it but somehow missed the turnoff after finding the national forest sign and next thing I knew, I was in the parking lot. Still, I got some good leg stretching on the walk up from there and some nice views. First of two (TN) that day.

mlandau3It Was Just One Of Those Days  Sucess!


I counted the switchbacks as we came back down Jack's Knob trail. It was hazy at the top. No views and it was another one of those steep paved trails from the parking lot.

Start of a six highpoint swing. Completely fogged out. Saw absolutely nothing but clouds. But great to check it off the list.

A beautiful day turned drizzly and cloudy. No view at the summit today but I made it. Bypassed the shuttle to the top so I could climb the trail that started from the main parking lot. The observation tower was closed when I was there but there was no view anyway. Oh well.

Bark Eater

Fun afternoon in the sun on a warm spring day. We were surprised that the summit was almost deserted with such easy access and good weather. Hazy but very pleasant day exploring the N. Georgia mountains with Lillian, Kate, and Ed. "Climbed" enough state highpoints to actually stop and tally them up...this is #15 for me.

This is one of the best maintained isolated high points.

But if you down-climb to the road and hike back-up... it still counts!

Date Climbed: Oct 29, 2009


Attempted the Arkaquah Trail late in the afternoon after high pointing in Mississippi and Alabama earlier that same day. I had hoped to reach Brasstown Bald before sundown and hike back in the dark. It didn't work out. I crested a mountain with the sun already set and the overlook tower was still a mountain away. I turned around. Being pressed for time, I ended up high pointing the next day from the parking lot.

HotovenGreat hike, but very very cold!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 28, 2009


I did this hike at around 10 am. and it was 21 degrees. That's not including the windchill. There was snow on top and also a great view!

fridayExcellent view and sunset  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 28, 2009


Visited the folks in Douglasville during Thankgiving and couldn't resist the urge to knock out a quick high pointer, not to mention getting away from the chaotic family get together. I took my brother, out of shape, but he enjoyed the hike from the parking lot. We caught the sunset and gorgeous views over looking ranges all the way to the horizon.

MlaskyIn Memory of My Dad  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2007


My Dad lived in Atlanta, GA. I was working in KY and drove down for his funeral. I climbed this on my drive back in his memory. I don't know if he had ever gone here or not, but this day he went to the top with me.

captainbuudaQuick day trip  Sucess!


Went up the easy way from the parking lot. Nice little trail. The weather wasn't bad either. Great view from the observation deck. Really one of the best views in GA. But I guess I should expect that with the parking fee and the enormous development of the summit area. Still, I guess I had to come here at least once, being an 18 year resident of GA.

Got there after the tower was closed but we hiked up to the observation deck. Really great views and a nice Highpoint. Very pretty country around there. Almost hit a bear in the road leaving the place too.

RedwicEnjoyable Hike...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 25, 2009


I opted to hike up and down from the summit. The views from the observation deck were spectacular, and the interpretive center (exhibits) had a lot of resourceful information. I would not mind visiting this HP again sometime in the future.

This was my sixth and final State Highpoint reached during Memorial Day weekend, and State Highpoint #38 for me overall.

We hiked up Jack's Knob trail - pretty tough "moderate" hike - felt like we'd earned it when we reached the top. Some cars and people up at the summit, but Jack's Knob trail was just us. Low clouds had the summit socked in. HP #15.

Went to the top as part of a solo backpacking trip. Decent views for Georgia. Bit of a bummer coming to the parking lot after five miles of solitude however.

Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2009


I'm having terrible luck with highpoints. Another completely foggy view, but the hike up was great. The summit area was really well done, too. I just wish I could have seen further than 30 feet.
