Ascent Trip Report

As far as I can determine, Chimneytop Mountain is the 11th highest named highpoint in Georgia. The trail to this highpoint is excellent. I approached from the east using the Arkaqua Trail from the Brasstown Bald parking area. The one-way distance was probably around 1.5 miles. The trail passes the summit on the north side just 100 feet from the top. It was possible to get a partial summit view through the trees, but during the growing season this is probably not an option. This was a very pleasant hike on an especially nice warm December day.
