East of Chatsworth and southeast of Eton in the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Tatum Lead ORV Trail is a 7 mile ORV trail. This is a one-way route along the ridge line of Tatum Mountain through dense forest. It connects up with the Rock Creek ATV Trail.
To reach the ATV riding trailhead for the Tatum Lead ATV Trail from Chatsworth, head east on SR52/SR2. The trailhead is off a road on the right about 0.8 miles east of Cohutta Lodge. Note: the road to the trailhead is subject to washouts and has high berms which may cause trailer drag -- not recommended for long trailers.
Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding on Forest Service roads is only permitted if the ATV has a valid license plate.
Overall, Tatum Lead ORV Trail is the 9th most popular ATV riding trail of all 20 ATV trails in Georgia.
