Lick Log Creek Falls Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is one of three featured hikes along the Chattooga River. Designated a Wild and Scenic River, the Chattooga is one of the few remaining free-flow streams in the Southeast. Don't forget a map as none are available in the area. The trail to Lick Log Creek Falls is an in-and-out hike that begins at Russell Bridge along Route 28 and follows the banks of the Chattooga River for roughly 4.5 miles.
Watch the route carefully as you leave the parking area, however, since the trail begins by veering to the right and makes a mild 200-foot climb over a small ridge in the process. It is easier and more tempting to keep walking straight on a side path beaten down by trout fishermen, but this route is a dead-end that stops abruptly at the water’s edge. Instead, follow the black double blazes of the Chattooga River Trail as it loops around Brack Hill, which can be seen across the water."
