The Cohutta Wildlife Management Area is a huge area of forest in north Georgia, of more than 95,000 acres. This site covers only a small area along good gravel roads in the southern part of the WMA, but the whole area is worth exploring for those with the time and curiosity. This WMA is encompassed within Georgia's Cohutta Wilderness area, which is the state's second largest wilderness area. The Cohutta Mountains are part of the oldest known mountains in the world. They run from Fannin County northeast to the Tennessee-North Carolina border, where they are known as the Smoky Mountains, and once bordered a prehistoric ocean. It is from these mountains that the Cohutta WMA gets its name.

We could not find the trail. We asked the campers and no one knew. Would be nice to have a trail head marked. We went down several trails all the were the wrong trail. we would love to go back if I could just find it. Does anyone have any info for me?

Tropical Storm Irma had an impact on the N Georgia mountains. Lots of down trees and brush across the trail throughout the duration of the hike. Beautiful day for a hike, 74 and Sunshine, low humidity and breezy. Great hike, just watch for a lot of natures debris on the trail.

Nice little trail, but took the forest road back down from the tower because we ran into some hunters on the trail coming back. Not sure if this is allowed but didn't want to get shot.
