    1st Cohutta Wilderness Hang

    Come and join us for the 1st Cohutta Wilderness Hang on March 23 & 24 at the panther creek falls.

    The Drive
    From Chatsworth GA, take Hwy 411 North to Eton. Turn Right onto CCC camp RD. On CCC Camp Rd pavement will end and head up the mountain running along Holly Creek. Mullberry Gap Rd will cut off to the right but continue on CCC Camp Rd. You will pass a DNR check in station on your right. Once past the check in station the road will split and you will need to turn left to continue onto Old CCC Camp RD. You will come to the dead end of Old CCC Camp Rd and take a right onto Conasauga Lake Rd. You will pass the Conasauga Trailhead on your right and will come to Three Forks Trailhead which will also be on your right. This will be where you will need to park.

    The Hike
    From parking area walk East Cowpen Trail. This was once a highway Old GA 2. At .4 miles you will reach Rough Ridge Trail, Which leaves right. Keep on East Cowpen Trail and you will reach Panther Creek Trail on your left at 2.3 miles. Follow Panther Creek Trail till it reaches the falls. For this hike the total distance is 8.2 miles in and out.

    I will try to be there. Put me down as a maybe.
    "The Road goes ever on and on,
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."
