The Chattahoochee National Forest covers 749,689 acres in north Georgia, managed by six ranger districts. Over 40 percent of the land in Fannin County is national forest land (106,000 acres). 40,006 acres are located in the Cohutta Ranger District and 66,097 in the Blue Ridge Ranger District. The forest receives more than 10 million visitors each year.

Rough, and mud driven slopes and the heat in the summer of 2015-2016 was a beast. Did in segments until reaching NC/GA/TN.

Awesome trail and great views. The dogs had a blast too.

This trail is very easy going into the fall, but it is not a trail for someone who isn't nibble. Many trees are down over the trail so it involves some climbing and maneuvering around the trail from time to time. The falls and pools are breathtaking and so worth the visit. Rest up because the return hike is largely uphill.

Lots of people.

So peaceful and right on the river the entire time! I can't wait to go back and camp! And definitely give you a little booty burning workout :)

Great trail! Tons of spots for my dog to get in the water! Highly trafficked causing some difficulty on the narrow parts of the trail

The stairs suck.... but, you can find a lot of good gear that idiot thru hikers toss to the side....I'm not picking that crap up.

coming from Ga. hey 515, stay on Rock Creek Rd. it'll turn in to a gravel road. Parking lot will be on the left. Nice trail.

Good hike. Moderate to difficult. Quiet with no other hikers. Goes over three different knobs. No great view but still worth it.

Absolutely beautiful! Many river crossing and a wet journey but I happened to catch the trail on a 70 degree day in January. Unfortunately a large portion of the surrounding woods have been burned from the forest fires making the trail markers even harder to find. Apart from the damaged forest this was a 10/10 experience.
