Once you understand this rock, etched by the foremost topographer of his time, your excitement will match its historical significance. It's difficult to find, as it mark's the undoing of Georgia and both Carolinas. A war was fought and people died over its disputed location. The hike follows the mighty Chattooga River upstream. The rock is on the south bank facing the river. A treasured hike. Feel the history.
Tough, rigorous and physically challenging but worth it. The hike from the campground takes you through roaring creeks, deep woods and ascents to a fork in the middle. Hanging a left and proceeding another few miles to the peak can be difficult if you are not dressed for the elements. Bring water, a change of socks and some extra clothing. The views are magnificent.
