Union County Georgia Hiking Trails

Coosa Backcountry Trail

Length: 12.7 miles
Rating: Moderate/Strenuous  

This challenging trail with its many ups and downs, and crossings through gaps and over mountains is sure to give you a good workout. Easier if hiked in a counterclockwise direction

This yellow-blazed loop trail begins in Vogel State Park and returns there after many ups and downs, crossing through gaps and over mountains. Some ascents are made gradually around the slopes and others steeply up the ridges. It is somewhat easier if hiked in a counterclockwise direction. Approximately one fourth of the trail crosses through the Blood Mountain Wilderness. Blazes will be farther apart on this section. A permit is required for both day and backpacking and is available free from the Vogel State Visitor Center.


Take U.S. 19 and 129 south from Blairsville Georgia for 10 miles. Turn right into Vogel State Park. Note: There is a parking fee in the park. The trail begins to the right of the road behind the Park Visitor Center.
