The Cohutta Wilderness is the ultimate destination for the outdoor enthusiast and ‘Take A Hike’ is one of its loveliest lodgings, as well as the hiker and mountain bikers’ dream. Beautifully situated on Mt. Pisgah, this cabin overlooks absolutely fantastic mountain views. It has three massive decks from which to enjoy them and from where you’ll be inspired to plan the many and nearby open-air activities that surround you.
‘Take a hike’ starting at the cabin’s property where you can pick from its delicious blueberry and blackberry bushes for snacking along your easy hike to a waterfall, cave or to Colonel Magnum’s memorial. A quick, 10 minute drive will get you to major hiking trailheads in the Cohutta Wilderness including Dally Gap, Jacks River, Benton Mackaye and Hemptop. Biking trails for the fittest or the novice abound at the mountain base. Just 20 minutes from the cabin, a water world of adventure awaits from white water river rafting on the Ocoee, to boating on Lake Blue Ridge, to trout fishing in Fighting Town Creek. On your way back to the cabin, swing by Mercier’s Orchards for some of the greatest locally-grown fruit and homemade goodies. Like all of the amenities that the Take a Hike cabin offers, directions to all of these locations are thoroughly provided.
