Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area consists of 8,274 acres located in the States of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. In 1811, surveyor Andrew Ellicott determined the starting point for the North Carolina-Georgia state line and chiseled an inconspicuous mark on a rock on the east bank of the Chattooga River. After continued dispute, two years later, commissioners from SC and NC re-surveyed the area and marked another rock (Commissioners Rock) just 10 - 15 feet away as the border between the three states. This "commissioners rock" is often incorrectly referred to as Ellicott Rock and is the official border between the three states.
1) Because the river is the boundary between GA and SC, as you might expect, Ellicott Rock and Commissioners Rock are located at the river's edge. There is also a rock, Chattooga Rock, located in the center of the river and identified with a Geodetic Marker. So, if you wish to stand on the Chattooga Rock, or lay eyes on Ellicott Rock, you should plan to at least get your feet wet.
2) Anyone signing up for this event who is registered for the Horsepasture River event the day before may want to consider camping/staying nearby, as these two events are in relative close proximity to one another. There is a campground/sites at Burrells Ford (must walk a short distance from parking) and there is the Cherry Hill Recreation Area campground within a couple miles of Burrells Ford. If you will be camping the night before please indicate so in the notes section of your registration.
