“A difficult climb to the top of Currahee Mountain where you'll enjoy a fabulous view of the north Georgia Mountains.”
— Lost Justpastnowhere
Three miles up; three miles down. Remember as you trudge your way up to the top of the mountain that this was the motto of the paratroopers who trained on this mountain during World War II.
It is kind of a brutal climb to the top, especially the last mile, where most of the 500 ft of climbing occurs. The ride down is pretty quick though.
There is a beautiful view of north Georgia at the top from a graffiti covered rock - and you don't have to carry a full pack with you to the top like the paratroopers... unless you want to.
