The Lacy Geocachers (Allen, Johnnie, and Robert) along with Nasty George decided that this area needed a geocache with a nice hike. Besides we had never been here before. The geocache is near the sign on the AT which marks the state border between Georgia and North Carolina. Now this sign was placed a long time before GPS were available, so it is about 1/10 of mile in North Carolina.
You can start on the Appalachian Trail either in North Carolina at Deep Gap on Forest Service 71, or in Georgia at Dicks Creek Gap on GA 76. Both have parking. Both routes require a significant hike, with a lot of elevation change. Also there are a lot of “top-teasers.” You know what I mean. Every time you think you have FINALLY reached the top, the trail veers off in another direction and UP!
Note the parking waypoints are offical AT trailheads marked on their maps.
