Chapter contributes to parking and access improvements on Chattanooga DH Section

October 13, 2017

Parking and access to the trails going up both sides of the River got a little better this summer thanks to the USFS folks and four of the local TU chapters in Ga and SC. The parking areas on both sides of the Chattooga Delayed Harvest (DH) section at the HY 28 bridge received much needed surface grading followed by installation of a top-surface finish of “crusher run” gravel .

The project was completed on June 21 by USFS labor/equipment and with funds for the gravel provided by the four local TU chapters: Rabun and Foothills chapters in Georgia and the Chattooga and Mountain Ridge chapters in South Carolina . The SC highway #28 access portion was also improved by SC DOT for better/safer access into the parking lot. Surface grading by USFS folks in advance of the gravel placement has significantly improved the surface drainage for both sites and should give fishermen and other trail enthusiasts a better parking site from which to access the DH section of the River.
