Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, is located eight miles north of Amicalola, Georgia, in the northern part of the state.
It is estimated about 3-4 million people hike a portion of the 2,175 mile trail each year. Some will be among the 9,000 "completers" since the trail was established. Completers include multi-year section hikers as well as thru-hikers. State high points along the Appalachian trail are Clingmans Dome TN, High Point NJ, Greylock MA, Mount Washington NH, and the northern terminus, Mount Katahdin ME.
