To play a game or challenge, you know there has to be rules. These are our rules for this one:
The true summit of all 32 peaks must be reached.
An application form must be completed with dates and descriptions of the hikes.
No minimum distance is required.
No minimum time frame is required. The peaks can be completed quickly or over many years.
Peaks can be reached in any combination.
No specified routes are required other than the restrictions listed below.
Two peaks are partially on private land (Alex Mountain and Flint Knob). These must be reached on public lands only and it is the participants’ responsibility to avoid trespassing on private property. These two peaks can be accessed from Rabun Bald or via Alex Gap. There is a road from Sky Valley to the top of Alex Mountain. Reaching the summit using this road is not allowed.
There is a large parking lot near the summit of Brasstown Bald. Peaks in this area may not be accessed from this parking lot. All of them must be reached by ascending from the base of the mountain, typically using the Jacks Knob, Arkaquah or Wagon Train trails.
Each person participating in the Georgia 4000 Challenge or attempting to reach any of the Georgia 4000 peaks assumes full responsibility for his/her own welfare and route selection.
