Trail access above Tate City, GA where the road dead-ends into the trail head parking lot. A strenuous hike which includes a very steep climb up to the top of Standing Indian Mountain from Case Knife Gap.
Another beautiful hiking day! Clear, cool morning with some stretches through snow left over from a couple of nights earlier. (10 mile round trip)
This is the trail head located just over the state line into N.C. above Tate City, GA.

April 1st - icicles along the trail!
We hiked through several stretches of snow!
Climbing up the steep mountain above Case Knife Gap.
