    Default Ranger Stations

    Are there Ranger Stations near the AT in Georgia? If so, where and how far off the Trail?

    Thanks for the reply. This is my first time on the AT in Georgia and I was thinking about forwarding a package to myself about 50-100 miles in. Advice?

    Love people and use things; never the reverse.

    Mt. Katahdin would be a lot quicker to climb if its darn access trail didn't start all the way down in Georgia.

    There are Rangers all over Georgia.

    They do train around the trail.
