Took GA 75 north past Helen, GA in to the Chattahoochee National Forest primitive campground. (You know you're getting close when you pass Andrews Cove Campground). It was amazing; camped for free right by a waterfall. Only downside was having to drive five mountain road miles on a gravel trail; totally worth it. Highly recommend for families or lovers!

Several forest service roads of varying levels of difficulty. Hill climbs and water crossings. Nice views at several places.

There are two famous hiking trails located in the Blue Ridge, The Bertram Trail and Rabun Bald trail. The Bertram was named after the famous Botanist Dr Bertram in the late 1700s. The trail runs from up around... More

There are way to many incredibly beautiful spots in the Chattahoochee National Forest to start to list them here. However this is one of the most beautiful and magical places in Georgia and in the Southern Appalachians. There is a lot to do and see here and there's not a lot of wrong ways to go about exploring the area,... More

Great views and beautiful wilderness. It is truly like an escape back in time. We spent several hours on the nature trails and enjoyed every minute of it.

No dislkes. How could one possibly dislike a forest? I have been to many forests all across the U.S. It is always a moving, awesome experience.

Loved the views and we took the 2 mile trail and it was awesome. The wild flowers were just coming out and the weather is cool in May. This county has more rain than most counties in the Nation. Take rain gear in the Spring.

This National Forest is a treasure and my view whenever I head to Clayton or Atlanta, I call the surrounding area home.
