You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Experienced This One Incredible Forest In Georgia

Chattahoochee National Forest. Quite a mouthful to pronounce. Quite an eyeful when you visit. This National Forest spans across 18 counties in North Georgia, and covers almost 750,000 acres. There are literally hundreds of waterfalls throughout the forest, not to mention an incredible array of flora and fauna just waiting to be explored. Chattahoochee National Forest is one of the most majestic parts of our great state of Georgia, and you certainly haven’t lived until you experienced it.

There are over 450 miles of trails, more than 1,600 miles of “road,” and 2,200 miles of rivers and streams within the boundaries of the forest. Not to mention a ton of recreational activities from hiking, to camping, to fishing, canoeing, kayaking, even sliding down a few waterfalls! It’s a great place to adventure each and every summer, and it’s practically right in your own backyard.

Here are a few of the more popular spots within the Chattahoochee boundaries:

Anna Ruby Falls Trail

Chattooga River Whitewater

Lake Blue Ridge

Panther Creek Trail

Tallulah Gorge State Park

Amicalola Falls State Park

Appalachian Trail in Georgia

Brasstown Wilderness

Headwaters of many major rivers including the Chattahoochee River

There are so many different mountaintop views throughout this sprawling forest, it’s hard to choose which one is a favorite. Plan a weekend getaway and explore as much of this forest as you can. The memories and photographs will be worth it.
