Hike Three Forks to Long Creek Trail
February 3, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Let’s head to Elijay!
“The hike to Long Creek Falls is a great way to experience the Appalachian Trail. This adventure includes a scenic 5.3-mile drive into the forest following Noontootla Creek to the Three Forks area where you will begin your two-mile round-trip hike following Long Creek to a beautiful cascading waterfall with two drops totaling 50 feet. Take a picnic to enjoy at the falls.” — ExploreGeorgia.com
“The adventure departs from a trailhead on Forest Road 58 (view maps and driving directions), following the Appalachian Trail northeast. Long Creek flows parallel to the AT on the trail’s left, running clear and broad over a colorfully-graveled creek bed. The hike follows two iconic, long-distance hiking trails: the white rectangle-blazed Appalachian Trail has converged with the white diamond-blazed Benton MacKaye Trail – and both blazes mark the trail to the waterfall.” –AtlantaTrails.com
This is considered a moderate hike. Views include waterfalls, cascades, steep river banks and the convergence of three rivers. It will be chilly near the water so layer up!
