Eagles Rest Park on Mt. Oglethorpe will host two events during the upcoming weeks. On St Patrick’s Day at 2 p.m., St. Paddy’s Ladies are scheduled to sing and lead a mountain high sing-a-long. Bunny Loftman, Terri Sawyer, and Shelley Gartin-Johnson will entertain the audience with a medley of Irish and folk favorites. The park is located at the end of Monument Road. The Big Canoe Gate will be open on March 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

At noon on Saturday, March 24, the Mountain Conservation Trust of Georgia will host actress Anne Van Curen who will reprise her role in “Grandma Gatewood Hikes the Appalachian Trail.” The Big Canoe gate on Sanderlin will be open from 10 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. for the event. As usual, please bring canned goods to donate to CARES, the Pickens County foodbank.

Eagles’ Rest is a public park with trails and observation decks on Mt. Oglethorpe, which was named for James Oglethorpe, an early leader of the Georgia Colony. It was originally the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail which has since been relocated to Springer Mountain. The summit which is comprised of 107 acres was acquired by Ken Rice and his wife in 1995. The park was developed as a public park which was opened in 2014. The Mountain Stewards maintain a trail system consisting of several short loop trails in the park and have built some of the structures. Contributions to Eagle’s Rest Park (mtogelthorpe.org) are tax deductible.
