As you would expect, the Chattooga River Trail follows the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River over the entire length of the hike. Although at times you’ll be standing high above the banks, you’ll never leave its side.
Large boulders strewn across the waterway create a canvas of nature that was painted perfectly. With calm sandy beaches for the dogs, and stunning scenery, this hike is among my favorites. Whether you find Ellicott Rock or not, it’s about the journey, not the destination. To enhance the experience, take the tangent trip to see Spoon Auger Falls.
