Other Long Trails & Cross-Georgia Hike

The Foothills Trail, the Duncan Ridge Trail, and the Chattooga River Trail are among the longer trails found throughout the Georgia mountains. They are described throughout this guide.

It has been suggested that one can hike across Georgia on first-class trails from the Cohutta Wilderness to Table Rock State Park in South Carolina. The new Benton MacKaye Trail goes from the Cohuttas to Springer Mountain, where it connects with the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail can then be hiked to Wayah Bald in North Carolina, at which point it connects with the Bartram Trail. The hiker can then turn east on the Bartram Trail and travel through North Carolina and Georgia (Rabun Bald) to the Chattooga River in South Carolina, where the Bartram Trail intersects with the Foothills Trail. The Foothills Trail can then be hiked to its terminus at Table Rock. It is estimated that the total distance would be 360 to 400 miles, depending on where the Benton MacKaye and Bartram Trails are completed. Spur trails and outstanding features are numerous.
