Cochran Mill Trail

A rare find near Atlanta


Follows old road to Bear Creek, there are two Waterfalls. The trails led us to the remnants of Barry Cochran’s original mill from the 1800s. There were also some ruins from the 1940s that were used by the property’s last owner Hiram Evans. Evans was an Imperial Wizard in the Ku Klux Klan and used the land for their secret meetings.The beauty of the place is that it is untamed and large and close to town.
