Highlights

Highlight: Rock Creek Road
This smooth and scenic road is the main entrance to the Blue Ridge Wildlife Area of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Just outside the beautiful Suches, Georgia, this trail offers access to the famous Appalachian Trail, a 2,200 mile hiking trail from Georgia to Maine. Following the heavily stocked trout stream, Rock Creek, all the way past Rock Creek Lake, this trail passes the Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery, which is open to the public. With at least a half dozen fishing access points to the creek, plus the fish hatchery itself and Rock Creek Lake, this trail offers access to some of the best trout fishing in the area. With hiking, fishing, camping and access to numerous other trails, Rock Creek Road is a great place to spend a day in the mountains.

Writer Information

Dave G.

Mapping Crew - Georgia

Dave is more of an explorer than a wheeler who loves to find remote locations to hike and kayak fish. Born and raised in Chicago for 21 years before moving to Atlanta, backroads and forests and mountains were a whole new experience and now he just can't get enough. When he's not fishing for stripers on Lake Lanier, you can find him in the mountains of North Georgia, Tennessee or South Carolina exploring and mapping backroads. Just look for the guy with the kayak on the top of the truck!
