Rec access to expand on the Chattooga

Written by 

A plan to make recreational access to the Chattooga River ecologically sustainable calls for construction of three kayak launch sites, new trails to access those sites, trailhead information kiosks and trailhead parking improvements.

The National Forest Foundation and its partners plan to begin work in the spring of 2018, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, which has protected the Chattooga for the past 43 years. From its headwaters in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, the river runs south 57 miles before meeting the Tallulah River in Tugalo Lake on the Georgia-South Carolina River. 

The project is part of a partnership between NFF and REI, which is investing up to $1 million in on-the-ground restoration and youth engagement efforts in national forests and grasslands across the country.
