Tucked away between the quaint mountain towns of Highlands and Cashiers you’ll find the Chattooga River Trail. The trail follows the river for a quarter mile before leading you to an outstanding sandy beach on the river’s edge. The water is calm enough to let the dogs swim, and the beach is big enough for them to run and play. Beyond the beach, the trail continues for another 2.75 miles, but follows the river from up above.
