Overview

Come see the beautiful fall colors in the mountains of North Georgia!

20+ miles of untouched single track, 20+ water falls (including the 120 ft Holcomb Creek falls and 80 ft Ammon Falls), 2 summits of Rabun Bald (the 2nd highest point in Ga at over 4,700 ft!), 2 x 360 degree views of mountains in 3 different states, 15 small bridge crossings, a couple of water crossings (one of which is thigh deep), and just more fun and scenic beauty that you could ask for. Oh and did we mention that it’s got over 14,000 ft of elevation change?

 

This gem of a 50k starts and finishes in Sky Valley, Georgia. Sky Valley is the highest city in Georgia at 3,100 ft. We have also named Sky Valley as the Mountain Running capital of Georgia for its plethora of trails within walking distance from the city. It was home to the Sky Valley Ski Resort which has since closed. This time of year brings the fall colors out that really pop off the reflection of the lakes. If this isn’t the most scenic run you have done then you never picked your head up during the race!

50k Course Highlights:
Summit Rabun Bald twice
Kelly Falls

Ammon Creek Falls
Holcomb Creek Falls
Upper Holcomb Creek Falls
Bartram Trail
Darnell Creek Horse Trail
QUALIFIER FOR THE GEORGIA DEATH RACE!
 
The Sky to Summit 25k is a run that starts and finishes in Sky Valley, Georgia. Runners will run to the summit of Rabun Bald and back. About 4000 ft of climbing total and the same descent. The race passes by some beautiful private lakes.

You will use the CCT and other sinlge track trails for the next 35 miles. To many trails to mention, well over 10. This includes tons of trails with in the 5 Points Trail system. These trails are flat to rolling hills with some short climbs. Nothing over 300 ft at once. These trails are not technical by trail standards but there are some rocks and roots. You will come back to the Backcountry Trail. At this point you will continue around the trail going counter clockwise. You will come back to the start and then head out on the last 11 miles of the course will be the hardest/most scenic.

You will run the following trails the last 12 miles: West Rim Trail, Waterfalls Trail, Sitton’s Gulch Trail, oh and a fun powerline cut.
