James E. Edmond Trail at Black Rock Mountain State Park

This trail is also known as “OH DEAR LORD WHY!?” at least it is to me and Greg. Don’t get me wrong, it was absolutely beautiful and we had an amazing time, but this 7.2 mile loop trail is nothing but hills. Over the course of this trail, you will fall and rise over 1000 feet in elevation, which makes total sense when you find out that Black Rock Mountain State Park is the highest elevation park in Georgia. And man, does it have some of the most glorious views. You can see for miles from the visitor’s center at the peak of the mountain. We totally want to go back and try our hand (or legs) at the other, shorter trails.

James E. Edmond Trail is a strenuous hike.
