To reach the mini-rapids and broad flat water of the scenic Chattooga River, follow this gently sloping .3-mile hiking trail. You will descend through mixed hardwood and pine forest in the quiet, fresh mountain air. A number of small foot paths divert from the easy to follow main trail. Just before you reach the river, go left at the boulder and you will reach the riverbank. Watch for deer, snakes, and other wildlife.
Camping: Primitive camping is allowed. Choose a site at least 50 feet from the trail, 50 feet from the river or any tributary stream and ¼ mile from the road. Please respect specific limitations when posted.
Safety: This is an isolated area, so remember to take water, first aid supplies, and insect repellent.
Surface type: gravel
Volunteers for trail maintenance are always needed and welcome. Contact the district office.
