Jacks Knob Trail

Length: 4.5 miles
Rating: Moderate

Jacks Knob Trail offers a series of exciting highlights such as the Chattahoochee Gap and the Mark Trail Wilderness.

This blue-blazed trail begins with a short climb out of Brasstown Bald parking lot, then descends nearly 1,500 feet through a series of switchbacks that cover about 2 miles. It crosses GA 180 in Jacks Gap and then climbs about 2.2 miles to the Appalachian Trail at Chattahoochee Gap.

Approximately 0.2 mile south of Jacks Gap, the trail enters the Mark Trail Wilderness. Blazes will be farther apart on the wilderness portion of the trail.


Take US 19 and 129 south from Blairsville, Georgia for 8 miles. Turn left (east) onto GA 180 Spur and follow it 3 miles to the Brasstown Bald Visitor Center parking lot. Note: There is a parking fee. The trail begins at the southern end of the parking lot.
