The Appalachian Trail begins in Georgia at Springer Mountain and leaves the Peach State 79 miles later at Bly Gap. The rugged, often rocky terrain reaches a height of more than 4400 feet and never dips below 2500 feet. The high point of the trail is at Blood Mountain (4,461 ft.) while the low point is Dicks Creek Gap (2,675 ft.) Access to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail is by foot from Amicalola Falls State Park.

Casa de Luna is the home of Terrie and Joe Anderson. By chance, they discovered their home was near the Pacific Crest Trail and that they really liked the people who hike that trail every year. Some hikers will choose to stay a bit, hang out and enjoy the upbeat atmosphere at Casa de Luna.
In addition to allowing hikers to rest a bit, Joe and Terrie maintain a set of water caches in what is a very dry section of the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s a lot of work hauling the water out to the trail, but they do it with a smile.
