Description

This Chattooga River access trail provides a moderately steep .2-mile paved route to flat water, or a moderately difficult .2-mile graveled path to the Bull Sluice rapids rushing over jutting boulders. Begin the trail at the left of the stone pavilion near the parking lot. You will walk beneath a cool canopy of mixed pine and hardwood trees. At 290 feet, you may turn left and descend on the paved trail to the sandy, rocky riverbank. Or, you may turn right and follow the rugged graveled trail along the mountain-side to a wooden railing overlooking the rapids. The trail is not maintained beyond this point.
