Come see the beautiful fall colors in the mountains of North Georgia!
20+ miles of untouched single track, 20+ water falls (including the 120 ft Holcomb Creek falls and 80 ft Ammon Falls), 2 summits of Rabun Bald (the 2nd highest point in Ga at over 4,700 ft!), 2 x 360 degree views of mountains in 3 different states, 15 small bridge crossings, a couple of water crossings (one of which is thigh deep), and just more fun and scenic beauty that you could ask for. Oh and did we mention that it’s got over 14,000 ft of elevation change?
This gem of a 50k starts and finishes in Sky Valley, Georgia. Sky Valley is the highest city in Georgia at 3,100 ft. We have also named Sky Valley as the Mountain Running capital of Georgia for its plethora of trails within walking distance from the city. It was home to the Sky Valley Ski Resort which has since closed. This time of year brings the fall colors out that really pop off the reflection of the lakes. If this isn’t the most scenic run you have done then you never picked your head up during the race!
