First post. Hello everyone!
Four of us are planning a trip in October from Springer to Unicoi Gap. We're thinking we'll drive down from Kentucky on a Saturday, stay the night somewhere, start hiking on Sunday and finish on a Thursday, stay in a hotel/hostel again, then leave on Friday.
Looking for you GA people's suggestions.
1) Stay at Helen, GA. Leave one car there, drive to Amicalola and leave a car there. Drive back once completed.
2) Park both cars at Amicalola then rely on shuttle service to pick us up at Unicoi to drive us back.
I guess I'm more concerned with how secure the end point will be versus cost of transportation of shuttle service. There will be nothing of value in the second car but who knows...and at the same time, it looks like we would have to get up early to drive back to Amicalola to do the seven to eight miles on day 1.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
