The Chattooga River Trail

click images to enlarge

There are more than 50 miles of trail on or near the Chattooga River. The river is the border between Georgia and South Carolina and one of the pictures below shows Ellicott Rock and Commissioner's Rock, which is the survey point of the border of NC/SC/GA. If you follow the trail to this point, you will be standing on the common point of the three states. (actually you would have to stand in the middle of the river - the shoreline is close enough)

The Chattooga River Trail is a great place to hike along a beautiful river. This section is fairly peaceful, but a few miles downstream, you will see wild and dangerous rapids.


ellicott

This is a picture that we took of Ellicott Rock. This is the disputed survey point chiseled into a rock on the riverside by Andrew Ellicott in 1811. It reads simply-- N C. This rock is slightly difficult to reach and it is very close to the water and sometimes is under water. Be very careful here because many have fallen into the river while looking for the rock.


commissioners

We took this picture of the rock that many people call Ellicott Rock, but it is found 10 feet south of the previous rock and is actually called Commissioner's Rock. The inscription reads LAT 35, AD 1813, NC/SC. Ellicott's mark was disputed by the commission which hired him and the dispute was so intense that the commission refused to pay Ellicot for his work on this survey.


Spoon Auger Falls

Spoon Auger Falls is a nice falls about 200 yards off of the trail near Burrell's Ford.

Lick Log Creek

This portion of the trail brought us by Lick Log Creek Falls. We hiked here from the trail access on Highway 28. The trail shares with the Bartram trail in this section.

many patches of bloodroot in full bloom.
