Rabun Bald Trail

Georgia's second highest mountain


This trail in North Georgia starts out at around 2,500 feet and ends at the summit of Rabun Bald, at 4,696 feet.

The trail ascends steeply to a set of switchbacks that lead further up the mountain.

Around 1.5 miles into the hike the trail crosses a small stream. Then it enters an area of boulders and comes out to a flat area where campers can setup for the night.

The last .4 miles is very steep, ascending about 450 feet to the top. There is a viewing platform on top offering nice 360 degree views.
