The Sutallee Trace

The Sutallee Trace Pocket Wilderness is a woodland oasis situated in the quickly-expanding suburbs of northern Cherokee County, in the state of Georgia.  With a rich diversity of flora and fauna, a wide variety of woodland habitats, and a fascinating history of human habitation, the Trace offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the cultural history and natural beauty of north Georgia.

The Etowah Hiking Trails traverse the wilderness, giving trail enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the diverse beauty of North Georgia within a short distance of urban settings.  The trail system, maintained by volunteers from  the Sutallee Trace Trail Stewards, provides over fifteen miles of marked and unmarked footpaths on which to relax and unwind.
