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! The trail through this southern state is more rugged than you might expect, and almost half of the A.T. in Georgia passes through federally designated wilderness.

Thermometer Icon

need to know

Avoid March and early April.
Campsites can be very crowded with thru-hikers and hikers on spring break. Weather in the tall mountains of North Georgia can be miserably cold. Because of the height of the mountains, the snowfall and cold temperatures can rival lower mountains 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.
