    A hike and a hang would be perfect.

    I'm not too familiar with any other places in GA besides the AT and a little bit of the Cohutta, but I know some amazing places on the AT we could get to with a good hike.

    I personally like the idea of Panther Creek, but having never been there, I don't don't know how well it would work.

    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    Panther Creek falls is beautiful. Last April I slipped off the top and fell the 7-8 foot drop and smashed into the big rock right in front of the huge drop. Stormed that night so the creeks were overflowed.

    From what I understand, yes there is. There is one in the Cohutta, it's a 4 mile hike down to the falls. It's gorgeous.

    This past weekend I took my Jeep up to the Jacks River area. I went up to a small lake called Murray's Lake. It covers about 5 acres and has numerous camp spots around it. You can access the lake on logging roads in vehicles. It would probably make a nice place for a group hang. It's definitely in an out of the way place.

    I plugged those coordinates into google and it is the logging road into the lake. You can see the lake on the map. There is a concrete boat ramp into the lake. No picnic tables. There are a couple of cleared areas with fire pits with plenty of trees for hanging. The nice thing is that it's accessible by road yet it's isolated. I'll post some photos I took while I was up there this past weekend.
