At the trailís end, the Byron Reece Trail offers a chance to set foot on the famed, 2000+ mile Appalachian Trail. ARKAQUAH TRAIL AT BRASSTOWN BALD- Location: Brasstown Bald near Hiawassee, GA Description: From stunning, sweeping views to mysterious ancient petroglyphs, the strenuous Arkaquah Trail explores incredible landscapes on the slopes of Georgiaís tallest mountain summit.

The trail is especially stunning in winter when deciduous leaves have fallen, opening beautiful views throughout much of the trailís length Ė and itís been a longtime favorite on our list of Georgia winter hikes.
