March 9th-18th of 2018, we hiked the GA AT! It took us 10 days.
This was my first overnight hike ever!
We parked my car at Amicalola Falls State Park and got a shuttle up to Dicks Creek Gap. We then hiked northbound until we reached Bly Gap (the closest landmark to the GA/NC line) then turned around and went southbound through the GA AT and the approach trail. That’s about 95 miles total!
Shout out to Suches Hiker Shuttle (Murris), a 24-hour, dog-friendly shuttle who has a lot of knowledge to share if you want any advice!
I definitely recommend doing this hike over a Spring Break!
