Default Amicalola state park

Has anyone been to this park in Dawsonville, Ga.? The web site says 25% grade on the access road to the park. I don't know if my FC will do this or not, kind of scared to try. Anyone have experience?

I have been up there, but not in a bird. I would check it out first in a toad. It has been a while and I am not sure I would try it without looking again.

I went there several years ago in a front wheel drive GMC. The pavement was wet and about 1/4 of the way up I lost traction and even began to slide. I had not disconnected my toad prior to attempting the ascent so that was the first order of business. Elise drove the VW to the he top assuming I’d be there shortly. Disconnecting did not help the situation.

After trying several things the ranger suggested I back down the hill. That was fun! He said it happens frequently but not me.

Not interested in backing down that hill again.
