Bear Creek Trail

  Wonderful day trip
Says Rene Townsend

Hiking here in Georgia is a must. Ok, you've been cooped up too long, time to get out in nature a bit and if you happen to be in Gilmer County of Georgia, Bear Creek Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching. Whitewater paddling is not for everyone but if it's for you then we recommend Mountaintown Creek. You'll meet a lot of people from Epworth here, and if you're here why not stop at Bear
    Pen Gap. If you come at the right time of year, Holly Creek offers some great whitewater. There's so much to do here at Bear Creek Trail that you need to camp here for a while, Fort Mountain State Park is a splendid site for that.
During your stay at Bear Creek Trail do have a look at nearby Parksville Beach. You'll need more than a day to look at everything Bear Creek Trail has to offer, you can camp at Lake Conasauga Campground. You can take a little spree to Mountaintown Creek Watershed Dam Number Two since you're here at Bear Creek Trail. A visit to Fort Mountain State Park when you're here at Bear Creek Trail is never a bad idea, and it's a magnificent idea to pop by Little Bear  
Creek. You just should have a thing about Bear Creek Trail. A quick visit to Crenshaw Branch close to Bear Creek Trail is a great idea. Bear Creek Trail sees pretty high levels of rainfall. The wettest month of the year is commonly March, that's the one that rains the most, and October on the other hand is the driest.
