TRAIL INFO: A beautiful section of the Bartram Trail along the Chattooga River and crossing the West Fork Chattooga River southward toward Willis Knob. The trail passes through a flat section near the river that was farmland over 60 years ago with an old abandoned hay baler in the middle of tall trees where the hay fields flourished. Also a nearby home place as evidenced by an old rock chimney that still stands.
We took a short walk off of the Bartram Trail down to Adeline Ford on the Chatooga River for our lunch spot.
