Bad Creek Trail

Bad Creek Trail

With Plenty Of Shade Along Its 6-mile Trek, Bad Creek Trail Is One Of The Most Serene Hikes In The Natahala National Forest.

This relatively easy stroll is perfect for casual hikers. Looking to stay overnight? There’s a great little campsite along the edge of the Chattooga River. And don’t forget your swimsuit and fishing gear! A kiosk at the trailhead provides additional details on the area and its rules and regulations.
