Near Chatworth in the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Sumac Creek Trail (#64) is a 12.5 mile route open to horseback riding. This long distance double-loop trail offers both the challenge of steep ascents and descents and the ease of flat double-track travel. From high, narrow ridge lines, trail users will drop into the rugged Sumac Creek drainage three times. Caution: The northern segment of the trail follows a gravel road that is open to vehicles. Watch for vehicles.
To reach the trailhead, take US 411 north from Chatsworth and go 12.3 miles to Cisco. Turn right onto old GA Highway 2 and travel 3.2 miles. Turn right onto Forest Service Road 17 and go about 2.1 miles to the trailhead parking area.
