The Cohutta and Big Frog Wilderness Loop is the result of a Fall 2009, 95-mile exploration of the dirt and gravel roads in and around the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area in Fannin, Gilmer and Murray Counties, Georgia, and the Big Frog Wilderness in Fannin County, Georgia and Polk County, Tennessee.
The Cohutta and Big Frog Wilderness Loop.kmz file contains one 95-mile track and 78 waypoints (with a few photos). This track is a loop. The track begins and ends at the intersection of Highway 2/52/Chatsworth Hwy and Gates Chapel Road. There are a number of roads you can use to access the loop, this just happened to be our access point for this particular visit.
In dry weather, stock 2WD vehicles should have very little difficulty driving this loop, though portions of the trail may require careful tire placement. A high(er) clearance AWD vehicle would be quite comfortable on this trail. In wet weather, the loop may be considerably more interesting and likely would require a high clearance AWD or 4WD vehicle.
