Hike Summary: The summit of Coosa Bald is roughly halfway on this loop hike, and at 4,271 feet it has spectacular winter views. Unfortunately, the forest has encroached on the once barren area and it is not possible to see from the summit year round. Other features on the hike include a wilderness statue of Jesus Christ near Calf Stomp Gap and some scenic streams and waterfalls closer to Vogel State Park.
