Georgia Peak Height Empire State Building Icon

cool to know

North Georgia mountains are nothing like the rest of Georgia.
The mountains are substantial—the highest peak is taller than 3 1/2 Empire State Buildings. You won’t find peach trees blooming or peanut farms here! Almost half of the A.T. in Georgia passes through federally designated wilderness.

need to know

Stay away in March and early April.
Campsites are very crowded with thru-hikers and spring breakers, and the weather can be miserably cold. Because of the height of the mountains, the snowfall and cold temperatures can rival some a thousand Trail miles north. You can encounter snow from November through March or April, and during cold snaps temperatures can dip to single digits.
