Weogufka State Forest - Flagg Mountain

At 1,152' Flagg Mountain is one of the southernmost mountains along the eastern seaboard above 1,000'.

4-mile loop trail with yellow blazes. Connector trail to a spring for water and connectors that will eventually connect the Pinhoti Trail and Coosa River.

It's the symbolic southern terminus of the Appalchian Mountain Trail (unofficial acronym) stretching north to Cap Gaspe', Quebec, Canada, and even further north across the St. Lawrence Seaway to Newfoundland's Appalachian Mountains and an additional 500 miles of trail! For hikers going north from Key West, FL, on the Eastern Continental Trail or from the Alabama/Florida state line to New York state on the Great Eastern Trail, Flagg Mtn. is the first mountain they'll come to. Or if walking south it's the last mountain they'll cross. AHTS is also working on the Coosa Wildlife Management Area which was recently purchased by Forever Wild so that we can connect Flagg to the Coosa River.
