If my memory is correct it is 61 miles from the start to the Alabama line and it continues in Alabama as the Chief Ladiga trail for 30 miles. I have only gone about 6 miles into Alabama and at some point after crossing in, the trail shrinks to about 5 feet wide. it is a nice trail and is very wide in GA (10 or 12 feet I think). after Rockmart there is a decent climb that could be a challenge if loaded down. check out youtube video of "Mt. Trashmore"
