Tour of the Appalachian Trail ( Appalachian Trail ), passing through the state of Georgia (United States), in a direction from south to north.

The walk corresponds to the layout of section 14 and second part of section 13, of the AT in Georgia and North Carolina, according to the official distribution of stages of the trail, and begins in Neel Gap (where the Walasi-Yi is located). Center), and ends at the Low Gap Shelter, where we spend the night.

The day is dry, but cloudy and very cold. On the trail there is little snow, mainly accumulated in the less sunny areas of the slopes.

At the beginning of the route, the trail crosses the set of services Walasi-Yi Center and Mountain Crossings, in Neel Gap, by a passage between the facilities, located just in front of a large tree with dozens of mountain boots hanging on its branches .

Leaving Neel Gap behind, we ascend quickly to the small top of Levelland Mountain (3,942 feet), from which you can enjoy a good panoramic view to the south. Also the Wolf Top Laurel Tops (3,766 feet), Green Cliff Top (3,853 feet), and Cowrock Mountain (3,842 feet) offer magnificent views.

From the top of Cowrock Mountain, the path descends quickly, for almost two kilometers, to the Tesnatee Gap pass, where it meets route 348, to then start a new climb to a height above 3,500 feet, that with successive and continuous small ups and downs will lead us to Poor Mountain (3,620 feet), and from there, in a gradual descent, to Wide Gap.

In the last three kilometers of the route, the AT gently climbs the hill of the Sheep Rock Top (3,600) and after its subsequent descent, reaches the Low Gap Shelter, located on the edge of two small mountain streams. This shelter has space for seven occupants, fire ring, picnic table, steel cables to hang food and protect it from bears, latrine, and easy water supply.
