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).
