Route: Duncan Ridge Trail (GA)

Georgia, US
50 km
Vertical Gain
2,700 m

The DRT is known around north Georgia as a rugged and difficult trail.  It is part of the infamous Georgia Loop, and the even more infamous Georgia Death Loop.  Before 2005 the trail was poorly maintained and routinely described as "bushwacking," but since then trail maintenance has been quite good, if sporadic.

I’ll be attempting the FKT for the DRT on the new reroutes this Saturday morning 2/17/24. I’ll hike in from Slaughter creek trail and head towards Long Cr Falls.
