Please join us on Saturday June 12th for our MBCA Peachtree June Mountain Run as we meet up at UNG's Lot 5 next to Dahlonega Square for a scenic drive and picnic at Brasstown Bald.
This event is free and open to members and non-members alike. Mercedes cars are preferred but all are welcome. Hopefully non members will decide to join the club!
Please note: Brasstown Bald is a national park. They charge a $5 per adult fee to enter the parking area. This fee is for admission to the entire park including the summit.
Our day will begin at 10:30am as we gather at the historic Dahlonega Square. There is a coffee shop on the square, and Starbucks nearby. We will start the run at 10:45 with more aggressive drivers leading the pack. (If you aren't sure about your driving style, please don't leave in the first group). The route will take us to the Richard B Russell By Way, where we will stop at Hogpen Gap for some photos. Then, continuing past Helen, we will head north to 180 and over to Brasstown Bald. If you have not visited Brasstown Bald, you are in for a treat. It is the highest point in the tr-state area. You can see 50 miles in all directions on a clear day. We will picnic in the large parking lot below the summit. After we eat, we will make our way to the top to enjoy the views, and then head home continuing on 180 west and southbound until we all go our separate ways.
You will need to bring your own picnic lunch and folding chairs.
The event is free. However, we will need participants to sign a liability waiver before the event. Also, we would like to know who is coming and what you plan to drive.
