Georgia - Woody Gap to Neel's Gap

This Hike is led by GWH Ambassador Angela Nouryeh!
This is month 4 of my Appalachian Trail series! This month we will section hike over Blood Mountain from Woody Gap to Neel's Gap 
This Hike will start at Woody Gap and hike over Blood Mountain to Neel's Gap. Blood Mountain has amazing views from the top at Blood Mountain Shelter. This is a strenuous hike and hiking poles are highly recommended due to all the rocks. There will be more information about carpooling on the FB post. 
Join me on Angela's AT Adventure series for this challenging but fun day of hiking! 
Make sure to bring trail snacks, lunch and 3 L of water for each day. Also remember to dress in layers, bring hiking poles and rain gear if applicable.
