Wheeling Trip to Tray Mtn Labor Day Weekend 2014

I know many people already have plans for this weekend, but for those of you Taco owners that do not have plans, a couple members are planning on running Tray Mountain either Saturday or Sunday!

Below is a little information via Wikipedia of Tray Mountain:
Tray Mountain, with an elevation of 4,430 ft (1,350 m) is the seventh-highest peak in Georgia. The boundary line between White and Towns counties bisects the mountain, but leaves the summit in Towns County. Habersham County lies on a lower part of the mountain, but not on the summit. Tray Mountain is within the borders of the Chattahoochee National Forest and is part of the Tray Mountain Wilderness. The mountain is referred to by some as the grandstand for viewing the Nantahala Mountains in North Carolina and the rest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. The Appalachian Trail crosses the peak.

The weather is looking to be the following for Helen, Georgia via the Weather Channel App:
Saturday:High 86, Low 67. Showers and thunder storms late. 60% chance of rain
Sunday: High 84, Low 66. Thunderstorms are likely. 80% chance of rain.


We are thinking about camping as well. We just need to make a decision on it ASAP.
PM me if you are interested!

Update:
So the plane is to meet at 8AM at Habersham Winery. The address is listed below. We will meet around that time and wait around a little longer to see if anyone else is going to be tagging along. If there any questions please contact me via PM and we can talk or text.

Habersham Winery
7025 Helen Hwy
Sautee Nacoochee, Ga 30571

^ I've been looking through that page recently lol

Pretty good resource to scope out trails in the area and surrounding states w/ a rating system, reviews, and pics! They beat me to it though bc I'd been wanting to do something like that

Tray Mountain went great! Thomas almost got in trouble with the DNR. Had five trucks up there. Only one other 2WD needed help getting up a hill. Other then that it went great!

He was in a mud hole. Apparently we were "tearing up the roads".

And no we can down a different way. We went up the chimney side. At least thats what Jason said.

It went pretty good! Got my first battle scars haha. Definitely ready to go back though. Probably would've been ALOT more fun if I'd had armor + winch. Or a full purpose built buggy or something haha.

Glad y'all had fun!
