Dahlonega has been named an AT Trail Community. Part of the celebrations for this designation will be the first annual Spring on Springer Dahlonega Trail Fest on March 18-20. The Fest will be held in Dahlonega, GA, the southern gateway to the AT. Planning has just begun, so not a lot of details at this point, but keep up with new info at www.dahlonegatrailfest.org.

Included will be camping, workshops, speakers, films, music, shuttles to Springer or Amicalola Falls, and equipment vendors.

Well, I'm ready for this. I have signed up for a campsite and have a few friends coming too. This is great news for the Dahlonega area.
