Headwaters of the Chattahoochee Hike
March 14 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
Join us for a beautiful hike to the spring where the Chattahoochee begins and be part of the first trip of our 25th Anniversary Relay Down the Hooch*. Thirty-five hundred feet high into the Blue Ridge Mountains at Chattahoochee Gap, where Jack’s Knob Trail dead ends into the Appalachian Trail, is a simple sign, pointing downhill, with a blue “W” for water. Thus begins the Chattahoochee River. You are in for a treat as you join CRK on this 5-mile round-trip hike to see the spring that gives birth to the mighty Chattahoochee River.
This hike’s difficulty level is moderate to strenuous, as there are several steep climbs. Please note that this hike may not be suitable for those with difficulty navigating multiple long, steep grades. We recommend this activity for adventurous participants ages 8 and over. More information will be sent via email upon registration.

*About Relay Down the Hooch: In 2019, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper celebrates 25 years of keeping watch over the Chattahoochee. In honor of our anniversary and the river that provides so much, we are embarking on an ambitious journey downstream – a Relay Down the Hooch that brings people together to experience all 435 miles of the Chattahoochee River. Stay tuned for more information!
