This challenging trail follows high, dry ridges for most of it's length. The trail begins on long creek near Three Forks on the Appalachian Trail, goes north and crosses the Toccoa River on a 260 foot swinging bridge. The Trail then leads north and west along Duncan Ridge through Mulky Gap to Slaughter Gap. It includes many steep climbs and descents over several steep mountain tops. The trail is blazed blue for all of this section but also has yellow blazes on the eastern portion, where the Coosa Backcountry Trail shares the same tread way and also will have the white diamonds of the Benton MacKaye Trail from Long Creek Falls to Rhodes Mountain. About 12.5 miles on the eastern end are within the Blood Mountain Wilderness. A 60 mile loop trail can be made by combining this trail with the Appalachian Trial.
Directions: From Dahlonega, Take US 19 and 129 south from Blairsville for 9.5 miles. Turn right (west) onto GA Hwy. 180 and go 3 miles to Wolfpen Gap. The trail crosses GA Hwy. 180 in the gap. The trail can also be reached in Mulky Gap by Forest Service Road 4, Mulky Gap Road.
Distance: 35.5 miles
