Highlights

Highlight: Water Gauge Road
Situated in the Chattooga River District of the Chattahoochee National Forest, just outside Tallulah Falls, Georgia, lies Water Gauge Road - a relatively smooth gravel Forest Service road offering access to the famous Chattooga River. The border between Georgia and South Carolina, the Chattooga River is a whitewater river where the 1972 movie Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds was filmed. A short hike down the Water Gauge Hiking Trail at the end of the road leads to numerous access points to the river for fishing, watching the whitewater rafters or just relaxing along the river.

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!
