Description of the Trail

Blood Mountain is the highest point on the Appalachian Trail (AT) in Georgia. It is one of the highest places in Georgia, after Brasstown Bald, and Rabun Bald. On a clear day, you can see the observation tower at Brasstown Bald. On the top of Blood Mountain, there is a two-room shelter that was built in the 1930's.
