Spread over 18 counties in north Georgia, the Chattahoochee National Forest includes 10 wilderness areas, over 2,200 miles of rivers and streams, over 450 miles of hiking and recreation trails, and 1600 miles of “roads”.  Within its boundaries can be found the beginning of the 2,174-mile-long Appalachian Trail, Georgia’s highest mountain known as Brasstown Bald, and Anna Ruby Falls which actually is two falls (from York Creek and Curtis Creek) that converge to form Smith Creek.

    1. Thank you. I live about 10 miles from the waterfalls. We took grandson Ben there for his first visit last Saturday, and the falls were only at 30% of their normal flow. We’ve been in a terrible drought here.

    Having seen it on the map, I’ve always wondered about this national forest. Your pictures make it more likely that I’ll find time to visit soon. 🙂
