Description

The East Fork Trail has 2 trailheads: one at the Chattooga Picnic Area adjacent to the Walhalla Fish Hatchery and one at Burrells Ford. Starting at the picnic area, East Fork Trail is an easy 2.5-mile hike along the north bank of the scenic, fast-moving east fork of the Chattooga River. You will pass through the lush, East Fork Gorge into the Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area, which provides a backdrop for most of this trail. It meanders to a junction with the Chattooga Trail, where you can backtrack or hike to Ellicott Rock, which is 1.9 miles north on the Chattooga Trail. If you start from the west trailhead, you will need to hike 2.1 miles on the Chattooga Trail from Burrells Ford.

Enjoy visiting the nearby Chattooga River Picnic Area, Walhalla State Fish Hatchery, or Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area.
