Tumbling Creek is one of the eight roads that make up the overlanding route around the Cohutta Wilderness Area. When traveling from the south to the north, the road quickly loses elevation, leaving the ridgelines' broken views behind you as you wind your way down to the lush laurel-lined trail below. Once towards the bottom, the road drives beside sections of its namesake, Tumbling Creek, with picturesque campsites dotted along its banks. Keep an eye out for mini waterfalls and bear! Most of this road is closed from January - March.
