Blood Mountain
The Facts:
View from Blood Mountain Blood Mountain is the highest point on the Appalachian trail in Georgia. At 4,461 feet it is Georgia's sixth highest peak. (Georgia's Mountains Listed By Elevation.) Proceed north on hwy 19 from Dahlonega, continue north through Neel's Gap. Access for day hikers is via the Byron Herbert Reece parking area located approximately 1/2 mile from the Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center at Neel's Gap. The parking area is on the left. Follow the blue blazed Reece Access Trail about 3/4 of a mile until it intersects with the white blazed Appalachian Trail at Flatrock Gap. Turn right and follow the AT about 1.5 miles to the top of Blood Mountain. The trail is mostly steep and rocky but very easy to follow. An old stone cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's sits near the top and serves as shelter to AT hikers. Hikers are rewarded with spectacular vistas, including views of Lake Winfield Scott, Mt. Yonah, Tray Mountain and Slaughter Mountain.
