Goforth Creek Trail

Goforth Creek feeds into the Ocoee River close about halfway up the Middle section on Highway 64. The trail is what’s left of an old logging road that runs alongside the creek until it reaches the water’s source after approximately half a mile. The trail continues for another 1.5 miles to the summit of Chestnut Mountain with a nice view of the Ocoee River Gorge. Goforth Creek is a wonderful place to take children with many medium to small waterfalls, swimming pools, and crystal clear water. Time the excursion properly and you can even wave hello to rafting trips as they float by!

Distance: .5 mile (1 total) following the creek, 2 miles (4 total) to the rim of the gorge
Difficulty: Easy/Moderate

Clemmer Trail/Rainbow Falls

This lightly travelled trail is one of the hidden gems of the Ocoee River region. A moderate, dirt packed trail leads to a waterfall and swimming hole. The adventurous can continue up the creek where there is another hidden waterfall just up from the first. Bring shoes you don’t mind getting wet because there are two creek crossings before the waterfall.

Distance: 1.55 (3.1 total)

Jacks River Falls Trail

Coming up from Atlanta and feeling up for a challenge? Follow Jacks River Trail from Dally Gap near Blue Ridge as it winds its way 4.65 miles (9.3 miles there and back)  through the Cohutta Wilderness to Jacks River Falls, a beautiful waterfall with a deep swimming hole at its base. Along the trail are several old growth hemlocks with beautiful emerald green moss and vibrant wildflowers. There are many slippery river crossings on this trail and finding the trail after river crossings can be a challenge, so this trail is not for the faint of heart.

Distance:4.65 miles (9.3 miles there and back)
Difficulty: Moderate/Hard
