HP# 16  Sucess!

About a month after my first HP trip to the E/NE that got me #s 4-12...It's time for another trip E to NC, but I took a S/SE side trip to get a bunch more HPs. (HP 4 of 7 during this trip). Pretty nice winding road drive up. Short easy hike from parking area to the top. Nice building/tower/platform observation, although the tower and bldg were closed for the season...which included the USGS marker behind a closed door. Great views from the platform though.

High Point #6  Sucess!

Nice little hike with some great views in all directions! Third high point of the day (NC, TN too) w/my dad so pretty special day even with all the driving!

Highpoint #16  Sucess!

3rd highpoint of the day after a lot of driving (NC, SC first) so I opted to just to drive to the top parking lot. Didn't love that they paved the trail but the views from the top were amazing.

Tropical Storm Claudette caught up with me, so I took the quick 1 mile round trip hike up and back. Parking fee is still $5.

Only 3 members of Memphis Outdoor Adventures were able to make this hike, but we had a great hike … and of course, good food afterward!

Cold and windy on June 26  Sucess!

Awesome hike on Arabian Trail. Then rain and wind made it feel like 50 degrees!

HP #3  Sucess!

My favorite high point so far. Great views, a visitor center with displays and a short movie, and a pretty drive in. Not to mention awesome weather

An aggressive stroll  Sucess!

Interesting high point: there are three routes, one entirely by foot (I didn't take), one by car to the parking lot and shuttle to the top (I didn't take), and finally by car to the parking lot and 0.6 mile steep, switchbacked paved trail to the top. I took this one and am glad I did, as I got there at 4:30pm and they were closing at 5:00pm.

HP # 27  Sucess!

This is a pretty cool area and a nice little trail to the Summit!

State Highpoint #26  Sucess!

I must agree with the author of this page when he says "No matter how you hike it, this is one of the most enjoyable Eastern U.S. highpoints". It just a cool mountain and so unexpected for a non-mountainous state like GA. Huge summit platform/tower gives one access to beautiful views in all directions. I just hiked up the paved trail from the parking lot, didn't use the shuttle bus service.

Highpoint # 19  Sucess!

Nice hike from Jack's Gap! Sure glad I remembered the bug spray; it's definitely needed.

Glorious day and glorious views  Sucess!

It was a picture postcard day. Just perfect. The views were just incredible...

HP #33!

Very touristy feel to it for a state highpoint. I love the panoramic views from all points of the tower, though.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Nice well kept area. Took the bus up from the lot. The USGS marker is inside a locked door at the center.
