Beech Bottom Trail

An easy hiking trail through the Cohutta Wilderness


The trail is actually an old road closed to vehicular traffic. It begins in Tennessee, then heads in a southeastern direction until it reaches Jacks River Trail, with Jacks River Falls only 0.6 mile downriver. Beech Bottom Trail is by far the easiest access to the falls, and therefore is the most popular trail in the Cohutta area.

Beech Bottom Trail Report:

This hike is an easy hike not to many up and down. There is some water running along the hike but during dry summers the smaller creeks do dry up Give this hike a try it will not let you down.
