Interesting Day in the Chattahoochee National Forest
Decided to drive up to Fort Mountain State Park (Georgia) for the day with the boys and finally take them offroad in the new Jeep. My kids are only 5 and 2 years old, so I was really looking for a short forest service road to take them on and then head back to pavement. From Fort Mountain, I took 52 East and turned off shortly before the Cohutta scenic overlook area. Turned out to be quite an adventure because we spent the next 3 hours on some pretty hairy moutain switchbacks. On the map, the trail looked like it went directly to Tails Creek which would have been perfect on our way to Ellijay... but after a couple of closed roads, I ended up in the Rock Creek ORV park. I actually came out of the ATV Loop trail. I must have put about 20 or so miles on the Jeep. I was in the woods from about 3 to 6pm and would have been a little nervous but the boys laughed the whole time and we had plenty of snacks to keep them happy. It was actually a blast, but I guess I probably broke a few offroading rules... Anybody familiar with that area? Is the map that I have out of date?
