Last Tuesday (March 8) Betsy and I returned to Mill Creek in the Cohutta Wilderness Area of north Georgia. We had been to Mill Creek a couple of times before, but we like the area, and since we were nearby, we decided to visit again.
One of the nice things about Mill Creek is the cascade, or shoals, which are reached after a fairly short hike from the parking/camping area. The shoals, as you can see from the picture above, are quite beautiful. The rocks about midway down the shoals, from where this picture was taken, provide a nice spot to sit and enjoy the movement of the water.
Mill Creek is reached from Crandall, Georgia, by traveling along Mill Creek Road (Forest Service Road 630). The road is not paved, but is graveled and in pretty good shape. Mrs. P, our Prius, got us into the forest and back out without any problems. (You can click on the map to make it easier to read.)
There are four waterfalls below the shoals, but since we had seen them before and it was getting ready to rain, we decided not to revisit them.
Besides, I had something much more pleasant in mind as we sat on those rocks by the shoals.
