Poplar Stump Road is a short but very secluded hunter's road that branches off from the ever-popular Chattahoochee River Road and heads into the depths of the mountains. Following up the ridge of Horsetrough Mountain, the road skirts the border of the Mark Trail Wilderness almost to the famous Appalachian Trail. While it has no obstacles or technical spots, it gets steep, and there were minor off-camber sections towards the top, making this trail suitable for any stock 4x4 vehicle. The road abruptly ends with nowhere to turn around, so you must backtrack to the safest place to turn around.

This seasonal road is only open a few weeks per month, from September through December. The dates vary slightly each year. Check the dates before visiting via the Forest Service website.
