Oconee State Park: Old Waterwheel Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail offers magnificent views and a great deal of solitude in addition to viewing a piece of history. The old waterwheel was used in the early 1900s to pump water to the rest of the camp.

This park is a camper’s paradise, with 140 campsites, 15 walk-in tent sites, and 19 cabins available for rental. It’s also an access point for the Foothills Trail (an 80-mile wilderness trail) and part of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. The park has five other trails available for hiking."

Some tough inclines. The top of the forest closest to the trailhead was burnt. Still very strong smokey smell. Enjoyed it. Just be aware of the inclines.
