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.

There's a Pretty view at about a mile in. Saw lots of families with little ones heading there with blankets to watch the sunset.. the rest of the trail is so so. Very well marked and well maintained but Not the most scenic hike. Great hike for little ones and fur babies

Foggy in the morning so the view was hampered, but it was a beautiful walk in a historic area. Glad we did it!

Great easy trail. Connects to Green Mtn trail easily but you would have to park cars at both trailheads.

Great hike but the trail that connects to it to make a loop was full of debris and was not hikable. We had to turn around and go back the way we came :-(

Great trail to hike on a rainy day.

my Google maps tools us to low gap which we did, but, I would like to do the real trail

Awesome view at the top

We hiked through a ton of fog...Hurricaine Nate is on the way. It was eerie and really beautiful. Trail was in great shape--some downed trees had been recently cut. As of October 7, 2017--no fall color yet. Maybe 2 weekends for the peak?
