Appalachian Trail in Georgia Click for more information

With elevations ranging 2,510-4,461, and a difficulty rating of 6 (1=Flat, 5=Strenuous ups and downs with only occasional flat sections, 10=Use of hands required, footing precarious--not recommended for those with fear of heights and not in good physical condition), this rugged trail runs north past Blood, Trey and Big Cedar Mountains, and through gaps named Addis, Neels and Woody to name just a few.

The beginning of the southern terminus can be reached via FS 42 and hiking 1 mile south to the terminus.  It can also be reached through an 8 mile blue-blazed approach trail coming from Amicolola State Park.

The AT is clearly marked with white, rectangular blazes, however in the wilderness the blazes are positioned less often and the trail tends to be more rocky and rugged.

The Chattooga Wild and Scenic River is most popular for guided rafting trips. This premier whitewater river offers some of the most challenging rapids in the Southeast. The Chattahoochee and Toccoa rivers are popular for canoe or kayak. Unlike most Georgia rivers, the Toccoa flows north instead of south, and is considered to be the state's loveliest river.

On the Oconee National Forest, Lake Sinclair is a popular lake for swimming, fishing, and boating. The Oconee River is an excellent canoeing river, with the Oconee River Campground the favorite launching point.

Photo from DeSoto Falls Campground. A pop-up camper sits cheerfully along the bank of the river at DeSoto Falls Campground.

The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest offers many different types of camping experiences, including those termed “developed” and “dispersed.”  Campgrounds are called developed when they have at least a few amenities (e.g. parking areas, entrance signs, picnic tables, grills, trash receptacles and vault toilets).  More highly developed sites may also include showers, electricity, flush toilets, sewer, and water.  For those who prefer solitude and privacy, undeveloped or “dispersed” camping is allowed in most places within the forest boundary. Dispersed camping is more primitive than in developed campgrounds, with few or no facilities. You will need to Pack-it-in and Pack-it-Out.

To ensure your safety and enjoyment, certain rules, regulations and orders are enforced within Forest boundaries.  There are general rules which apply to National Forest land, in addition to more stringent rules which apply to developed recreation sites.

These falls seem to come right out of the forest as they cascade about 50 feet into the pool below.

As always, please stay on the trail to protect the surrounding plant life and the soil. Never attempt to climb on rocks around these waterfalls. They are often slippery. One wrong step could lead to disastrous results.

Named after Gordon Keown, the original surveyor of much of Northwest Georgia and the Keown Falls, this trail is 1.8 miles and offers a gentle, yet steep climb to the top of John's Mountain, which is part of a geological formation called "Ridge and Valley."  The trail starts off fairly level and then turns into a series of switchbacks climbing the mountain (steep, but doesn't go on for too long).  Here, after climbing some stone steps, a cool cove and the first set of falls can be seen. Just ahead is the overlook where one can see the second set of falls.  Be forewarned that the falls do sometimes run dry and are best viewed in the spring. However, there is a sign posted at the base of the trail with the current water conditions listed.

Dispersed (primitive) camping—Dispersed camping is available in multiple locations throughout the forest, and is intended to provide a rustic, less manicured and natural experience.  Whether you decide to camp within a Congressionally-designated Wilderness or the general forest area, we ask that you follow the principles of Leave No Trace.  By leaving no trace you are reducing your impact to the natural environment and preserving the quality of experience for future visitors.  Basic Leave No Trace principles include the following:

  • Secure all food and keep safe from bears.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • Do not leave campfires unattended.
  • Be sure to completely put out any campfire before leaving your site unattended.

Please click here to view details of all Leave No Trace principles and suggestions for safety when camping.

In addition to these general rules, Regional Foresters and Forest Supervisors may issue orders which close or restrict use of certain areas when the need arises.  The purpose of these types of closures would be to protect human life and to prevent damage to natural resources.  Copies of these orders can be found in any Forest Service office.  Many times they are posted on the information board at a recreation site, as well.
