First, with a little thanks to Muletop Mountain Outfitters near Blue Ridge, GA we'll view the beautiful scenery of the Chattahoochee National Forest from horseback. Along the way we'll visit with a couple of people whose job it is to protect and manage the Chattahoochee National Forest.
And while we're in the North Georgia mountains, we'll explore the eastern United States' longest foot trail – the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. One of the longest maintained foot trails in the world, the Appalachian Trail has its southern terminus in Georgia at Springer Mountain. We'll learn how to be responsible hikers and we'll learn about hiking with kids and hiking with dogs! We'll also meet the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club Ridgerunner to find out how he spends his days on the trail.
