Trail Information

Highlights

Just south of Blairsville right outside the Coopers Creek Wildlife Management Area can be found Forest Service Road 287. Following along the ridge of Bowers Mountain this short trail is often overlooked because of the remote location of the trailhead. Surrounded by sights and sounds of nature the entire way this easy trail is a great addition to any day out exploring the mountain forests.

Single lane. A few areas to pull off if you meet someone. Nice turn around at end. Smooth drive.

Gated for some reason. Doubled checked and it is a year round trial, but it's gated.
