Directions from Clayton: Take Warwoman Road east for 16 miles to Overflow Road (Forest Service Road 86). Turn left and drive 4 miles to John Teague Gap, where the trailhead is on the right.

I rate this trail and the Three Forks spur a 5 star if you completely hike them all the way down to the river. It gets really steep and thick though the last few hundred yards of both and may be tough for some. The trail minus going all the way to the river is average, but both the Three Forks creek junction (off the trail spur) and the river accessed off the regular trail are breathtaking and some of the most beautiful creeks and areas I’ve ever seen. You do have to cross Holcomb creek and keep going to get to the actual three forks off the spur trail but it’s so worth it.

beautiful trail - a bit overgrown but still a worthwhile experience. this should be ranked more as "moderate" that easy; you descend the 600 feet at the beginning of the hike and end at the river, but then must ascend 600 feet back to the trail head. these are relatively steep feet, not switchbacks. also, the road leading up to the trailhead nearly requires a 4 wheel drive vehicle (most definitely would have if it had rained recently). my SUV crossover is not AWD and struggled making the ascent up the gravel road, which was washed out in some places.

Perfect hike with the hubs! A little to steep for kids, the last mile or so. It would be hard for some people to find the trail on the other side of river once you cross over to get to the main forks and waterfall. Be careful crossing over because you basically at the top of this Little Rock water fall and rocks are slippery. Only two camp sites at forks. Also careful for snakes on big hang out rock by mail waterfall.

easy first mile nearly downhill until the sharp left. As of 6/23/2018, large tree fall across trail around 1/2 mile from trailhead. You must ford Holcomb creek 50 yards upstream from the slot waterfall to get to next section (not shown on this site's map) to see actual Three Forks. This section of the trail had several (we counted six) tree falls which made us turn around. Chainsaw anyone? Still, the first falls at Holcomb is worth the relatively easy hike. One campsite near this falls is tight, a few trees for hammocks, a small firepit but close to the edge near the falls (loud).

Great trail in the beginning but definitely gets difficult if you are going to the actual 3 forks but well worth the effort.

Trail was fairly nice. Needs some maintenance though. A good number of trees fallen across it but we never lost the trail. Dog hurt her leg (she was fine after walking it off) going over one of the fallen trees and the humans had a couple of slips doing the same. There is a camp site at the apex that looked a bit well worn. We picked up some MRE remnants there. (Grrr) Fine for a tent, multiple hammocks was a bit of a challenge, but mainly because we needed them to be near each other (young ones with us). Finding an appropriate spot to hang our food was tough, the trees are all quite tall with few horizontal branches, plan to hunt for a while for an appropriate branch. As far as we could tell the one well used camp site is about the only option for tent camping, I would have preferred a less commonly used spot but the grade is too steep everywhere else.

Beautiful trail! Definitely hard in some parts but well worth it to get closer to the river!

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.

Gradual beauty all the way to the sour trail down two minutes to Holcomb creek waterfall! Wow what a treat!! We enjoyed the gift of Autumns beauty the entire way

This was a great short hike to a beautiful campground by the river. There are actually two different 3 forks trails. One is shown on All Trails and most maps but another trailhead is on Hwy 28 about 1.3 miles south of the NC state line. This trail is about 7 miles out and back and features a swimming hole.

FYI, the forest service road is closed just beyond Three Forks Campground (since March 2014) due to major road erosion. Date(s): Mar 24, 2014 Contact(s): Chattooga River Ranger District 706-754-6221 Overflow Road, FS Road 86, is closed until further notice, from Westfork Campground to the intersection of Tottery Pole Road, FS Road 86 C, due to hazardous road conditions. There is an alternative route via Hale Ridge Road, FS Road 7. This impacts your access to the trail. As of June 2015, it is still closed.
