Trail Overview

Earls Ford is an out-and-back road with a few obstacles that are worth the ride out to experience. Also, you are rewarded with an awesome overlook of the Chattooga River at the end. This trail has some spots you will need to take your time on with an amazing creek crossing that could become impassable during periods of heavy rain. Cell service is spotty at best and we did not have service for most of the trip. There are a few dispersed camping spots along the river that would make for a peaceful spot to stay for the night.

Pretty busy area, but drove all the way to the Chatooga River and saw horseback riding, fly fishing, swimming and kayakers all at the same place.
