The Rocktown Trail

Rocktown is an interesting formation that is on top of Pigeon Mountain, which is a ridge that shoots off of Lookout Mountain about 30 miles south of Chattanooga. It is also about 6 - 7 miles SW of La Fayette, GA. Some of the rocks have cracks that have walls that are 100 feet high.

Tina and Mark trying to find a way downRock Town is a short one-mile hike to the beginning of the rocks, but from there it is really big and wide. You can hike on the floor or hike around up on the rocks, but you can get stuck up there. We could not get off of the rocks in the picture at the right but one way -- the way we got on!

Champaign Glass RockMy brother and wife were with me on this hike. The photo at right is of "Champaign Glass" rock. It is amazing that it stands on the small base and it even survived the 2003 earthquake that was based in NE AL and NW GA.

We also came across a bobcat in one of the rock cave/crevasse areas. It just stayed in the cave. We saw feathers at the entrance, and could hear breathing in the cave. Other hikers report seeing bobcat here and the game warden confirmed to us that they are indeed in the area. Be careful.

This is a great place and one of the must see locations in Georgia.
