Trail Information

Highlights

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.

Nice road and plenty to see. We stopped at the fish hatchery along the way. Our go for the day was another trail at the end of this one, so hey, you get a two for one. There is a church part of the way up the trail with an outhouse, just in case. The hatchery is open during the week only and also has a bathroom.

A well maintained gravel road, but the large pond is fantastic.

Trail continues to be highly maintained, suitable for pretty much any passenger vehicle. Really don't even need much ground clearance. Almost all camping spots were filled today. Counted at least 25 people fishing along the road too. Also, there is a bridge between Waypoints 5 and 6. I parked at that bridge today and hiked the little trail and found a really nice waterfall! 0.6 mile (strenuous) hike right to the falls! As if this road didn't already have enough cool stuff!!!
