Trail Information


Just outside Cornelia lies Georgia Mountain Orchard Road. One of the less commonly used entrances to the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area - a 17,000+ acre area known for primitive camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing - this seasonal trail connects from the northwestern boundary of the Wildlife Management Area to Red Root Road. Popular with hunters during the seasons, this trail is also good for overflow camping when the other camping areas along the more commonly traveled roads are occupied.
