The Georgia Pinhoti Trail is the longest foot trail in Georgia. It stretches from the Alabama line in Polk County just out side of Cave Spring to the Benton Mackaye Trail deep in the Cohutta District between Ellijay, Blue Ridge, and Chatsworth. The mission of the Association is to To promote, develop, and maintain the Georgia Pinhoti Trail System that: connects major long-distance trails in Alabama to the Appalachian Trial via the Benton MacKaye Trail; and
enhances user value by connecting to and supporting establishment of local official trails. The Association advocates safe, environmentally sound multi-use trails shared by hikers, equestrians, and off-road bicyclists. Our activities are completed in close cooperation with the trail volunteers and various land managers, especially the U.S. Forest Service. Note: the Association is possibly inactive at present - the most recent events calendar date shown on the above Web site is Dec 2004.
