PH3 16 June - Davey in Dawsonville?!

You aren't that drunk...yes trail will be 45 minutes north of the perimeter. And there are rules?! Well, just one: remember that horses always have the right of way and are not to be disturbed. For reals.

BUT...trail will start at these coordinates (directions below but please be CAREFUL when you cross Highway 9 'cause it's hard to see and they fly out there) 34.350294, -84.141748 or use Riverview Elementary School in Dawsonville (370 Dawson Forest Rd E, Dawsonville, GA 30534) and the entrance is just past the school. -- AND you can camp Friday night or Saturday night or both although there are no services at all (no water or power but there was a port-a-potty out there last time I was there). Expect a longer trail 6-7 miles maybe and be advised there are no roads where we can reach you. Which will be part of the fun, right? Right? This is Dawson Forest - the City of Atlanta tract, not Wildcat - where they tested nuclear aircraft (look it up).

Parking is free unless you are biking which is another option -- there are 10-15 miles worth of trails you can bike plus some closed roads too. If you are biking you must get a permit which is $7 (bring cash or check) when you park.

Bring bug spray and water. Beer stop will be scenic!

Directions from Hwy 400: Take Hwy 400 North to the Dawsonville Outlet mall Red Light. Turn Left (West) if traveling North onto Dawson Forest Road. Continue straight for approximately 3.8 miles until the intersection/stop sign. Proceed straight through intersection for approximately 1 mile to South entrance gate. Proceed through gate and Parking Area/Trailhead will be just ahead on the right.

Oh, and if you want to hit the wineries before or after...that's possible too (although the window they are open isn't that long so if you hash you won't have long there....)
