New Section of Pinhoti Trail Opens May 3rd

The  Georgia Pinhoti Trail Association is hosting a grand opening of a brand new section of the Pinhoti Trail on Saturday afternoon May 3rd at 3 p.m. The celebration will be at the new parking lot on Dennis Mill Road on land that was purchased by the Conservation Fund so the trail could be built.

The Georgia section of the Pinhoti is the longest blazed trail in Georgia, running from the Alabama line in Polk County, GA to the Benton MacKaye Trail near the Cohutta Wilderness. The new section adds approximately 20 miles of blazed trail.

The Pinhoti is a multi-use trail open to hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians along much of its route. This new section of trail is the result of many years of work by several groups. Many of these groups will be present at the grand opening.

Please join us for the opening and meet many of the people that have made this a reality.
