Geocache Description:

This cache is located on the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Here you can enjoy the view of the longest suspension bridge in Georgia and visit portions of the Benton-MacKaye Trail and the Appalachian Trail. The view down to the Toccoa River from the cache site is wonderful making this cache site worth visiting!

Note: hunting is allowed on this area during hunting season, if you plan to visit the area during the fall it may be advisable to wear a vest or hat colored with hunter's orange.

How to get there: Head North on Hwy 60 to Rock Creek Rd, there will be a Fish Hatchery sign just before Rick Creek Rd, take left and continue 2.9 miles until you see another Fish Hatchery sign, take right and continue 2.6 miles and take right over bridge, you will need to ford a small stream, shortly after that the rd will fork, take Forest Service Rd 308 to the right; continue .5 miles to a gate on left. This is your beginning.

This cache was placed by "Georgia Outdoors Crew". They were no longer keeping up the cache so the Lacy Family is now taking care of it. The Georgia Outdoors Crew web site. http://www.gpb.org/gptv/georgiaoutdoors
I would also like to thank Indy Diver for replacing the cache box and log book plus throwing in a few prizes. Thanks, Indy Diver

Additional Hints (Encrypt)

From the gate walk about one quarter mile along a service road until it narrows to a path just before a long suspension bridge. Just before this bridge the path will split to the right and continue down to the river and to a campsite. Enjoy this view. Now, follow the hill leading up away from the river. The cache is hidden in a tree stump.
