Highlights

Highlight: Cooper Creek Road
Just north of Suches, Georgia and right next to Lake Winfield Scott lies Cooper Creek Road. This trail is the main route through the Coopers Creek Wildlife Management Area that spans more than 30,000 acres and offers hunting opportunities for deer, bear, turkey and small game in addition to trout fishing. There are numerous small clearings for camping along this trail including some right along the creek. This trail is also a connecting trail to four other trails. The eastern trailhead is across the street from the Winfield Scott Recreation Area which has full facilities including nice restrooms. With so many things to do, and its close proximity to so many other trails - Cooper Creek Road is a great easy trail to hit while out exploring the forest.

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!
