About Us

Top of Georgia Hiking Center ("TOG") is a relatively new breed of Appalachian Trail hiker destination - (having opened March 1, 2014) BUT we operate in an "old school" Appalachian Trail spirit!

We are not only a hostel - but also the location of "Top of Georgia Outfitters" (gear / fuel / re-supply / shipping) and the  "Appalachian Trail School" (FREE optional 30 minute "10 Golden Rules" seminar held every morning  and FREE 6 hour "AT 101" course held twice every month).

What Our Hikers Say

"Absolutely fantastic! Bob & his team provide a most wonderfully accommodating respite from the trail and / or a great way to slack pack through 16-miles of Georgia's most arduous AT section. DON'T MISS this gem of a place! Thank you TOG...refreshed, resupplied, and rested! See you again soon I hope! "
