Interested in exploring one of Georgia's prettiest day hikes along the AT? Come join GWHGA as we explore Preacher's Rock and continue on to Big Cedar Mountain with stunning trail overlook views. This is considered a 3.4 mile out and back trail that can be heavily trafficked (hints our earlier meeting time). This is also considered a dog friendly trail. We will meet at the Preacher's Rock trial head at Woody Gap- 10 am and I highly recommend showing up a few minutes earlier. Carpooling will be encouraged because parking can be limited at times. 

In regards to pacing: Our GWH group have many differently paced hikers that come to our meet ups. Our meet ups are a no judgement zone and we are here to encourage as well as motivate each other along the trails. We stay together as a group.

Wondering about carpooling? This time I will be coming from Gainesville, Georgia and will be crossing over interstate 400 where I can meet you along the way there! Also, by posting below in comments you may find other ladies that are in your area, interested in shortening their drive, and making a friend!

Preparing for hike: make sure to eat breakfast and hydrate, wear comfortable layers (as you hike you will warm up), supportive tennis shoes or hiking boots with good tread, trekking poles as needed, at least a liter or more of water, hiking snack, first aid supplies as needed, sunglasses, hat, camera, and most importantly a positive attitude. Any other questions or concerns feel free to ask in comments below! 

ALL participating hike attendees MUST sign the liability waiver found below. You only need to sign once to be cleared for our GWH meet ups
