Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

This hike will be listed as easy, with only one relatively short rise that would be rated as moderate. A relatively flat trail. The hike will be 9.5 miles in length and will require a car shuttle, as this will be a one way hike.


This hike will be in northeast Georgia near Clayton and the South Carolina border. The Chattooga River Trail will run concurrent with the Bartram Trail for most of this hike. We will be hiking on the Georgia side of the Chattooga River. The trail will only touch the Chatttooga River about 3 times, with more viewing along the path. Near the beginning of the hike we will come to Dicks Creek Falls, one of the most glorious sights in Georgia.


Plan on a 7 hour event, with hiking and car shuttling.


Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

The meeting location for this hike will be at the Burger King in Clayton. We plan to leave the Burger King at precisely 8:00 AM. So, plan on being there earlier for meeting and breakfast.


The Burger King is located at 73 Rickman Rd. in Clayton, Georgia 30525.
