Arkaquah Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Native Americans dubbed the land near this trail “Arkaquah,” which is the Cherokee word for a crooked creek. But the Native American presence here predates the Cherokee, stretching perhaps back to Archaic period (8000 to 1000 bce). Petroglyphs on boulders near the parking area are evidence of early habitation. It’s worth it to take a moment and examine this artwork before starting your trek on the Arkaquah Trail, which runs between Trackrock Gap Road and Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest point."
