This is a moderate backpacking trip that follows the Rice Camp Trail to Jack's River. One way is approximately 4 - 4 1/2 miles. The camp site is situated along the banks of the Jack's River.
On Saturday afternoon, we can take an optional hike to the spectacular Jack River Falls, this is approximately a two mile round trip hike from the camp site. Swim if you like. You will have to cross the Jack's River (the water is knee - thigh high) so water shoes are recommended for this shorter trek. You may want to carry some items in a small pack/pouch, including camera, bee sting remedy and water.
|How to Get There:|
From the GA 52-US 411 intersection in Chatsworth, travel US 411 North approximately 13.4 miles, past Eton toward Tennga, to the community of Cisco. In Cisco, turn right onto the paved road immediately before the Cisco Baptist Church, also on the right. Once part of GA 2, this road is now known as Old GA 2. This road is also FS 16. Continue on FS 16 (the pavement ends; stay to the right at the fork; pass Hopewell Church; cross the Conasauga River) for approximately 7.9 miles, then turn right onto FS 51. Proceed about 4.8 miles} making two fords. The fords may require a utility vehicle in wet weather. You will find the Rice Camp trailhead, bulletin board, and parking area on the left. As you approach, Rice Camp Trail is to the left and East Cowpen Trail is straight ahead into the wilderness. (The road dead-ends at the trailhead.)
