2.4 miles

Hey, new blog post! I’ve been hiking the past couple of months, but nothing new until now. We flew to Georgia and met Cat and Greg in Atlanta (they came from San Francisco, where they live) and then drove up to Dahlonega to surprise Isaac for his 40th bday. This was a fun weekend.

On Saturday we drove out to Duke’s Creek Falls for a quick and easy hike. The falls are right along the edge of the Raven Cliffs Wilderness. The trail is partly paved at the beginning and then has a few quick switchbacks down to the falls at the bottom of the ravine, which are accessible via a viewing platform and boardwalk.

The trees are at peak color change in the mountains of northern Georgia right now and it was beautiful.
