Chattahoochee National Forest Recreation Description. MSR Cookset
Hiking and Riding: With over 430 miles of trails on the Chattahoochee, it's hard to find an area without some type of footpath. From short day hikes to more arduous trips, for novices or experts, there is a trail for every level and purpose. The four long-distance trails on the Chattahoochee are great for backpacking: the Benton MacKaye (53 miles), Bantram (37 miles), Duncan Ridge (35.5 miles), and Appalachian (79 miles on the Chattahoochee).

Fishing: With over 1,300 miles of trout streams on the Forest, there are plenty of opportunities to catch trout, walleye, bluegill and bass. Lake Blue Ridge is the only place in Georgia to catch muskellunge. This 3,290 acre lake is bordered by two Forest Service campgrounds and has a privately owned marina for boat rentals. Nottely Lake, Lake Chatuge, Lake Burton, and Lake Rabun also touch the Chattahoochee and provide good trout and bass fishing.

Water Recreation: The Chattooga Wild and Scenic River is popular for guided raft trips. The Chattahoochee and Toccoa Rivers are popular for canoes or kayaks.
