Emery Creek Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Emery Creek Trail is located on the southern edge of the massive, 96,503-acre Cohutta Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The Cohutta Mountains are some of the oldest on Earth and are characterized by mountain peaks of more than 4,000 feet dropping sharpl"

"There is hardly a better way to spend a warm summer day than on a cool mountain stream. Th is particular hike starts along Holly Creek, a mountain cataract full of plunge pools ideal for swimming, with open rock slabs as excellent sunning spots too.

From there, you will hike up a tributary, Emery Creek, swaddled in Southern Appalachian forest. Step over the stream numerous times to reach a gorgeous waterfall that spills in stony steps into a deep plunge pool of its own."
