Recommendations for 30 Mile Route on AT (GA or nearby)

Hey there!

New to the site - looking for a good 30 mile route to take. Avid hiker, but have not completed any mileage on the AT. Any recommendations? Could start in GA or thereabouts.

@KChase - Definitely would recommend starting at the beginning! Start at Springer Mountain and head north to Neel Gap. It's 31 miles and gorgeous views. You'll end your hike at Mountain Crossings which is a great little outfitter. 

@Former community member you beat me to it!!  I'm planning my next adventure nfrom Hightower Gap to Gooch Gap on a few weeks but I've done from Amicalola to Hightower so far.  Absolutely gorgeous trail so far.

what @Former community member said. If your going to do a 30 mile section in GA might as well start at the beginning. You could also do the section between Neal Gap and Dicks Creek gap.
