linking the South Carolina side (Rocky Gap) with the Georgia side (Willis Knob). A brochure detailing the trail, river fords, and rules and regulations is available at the Andrew Pickens district office. Rocky Gap (SC) is 12.5 miles with several loops. Willis Knob (GA) has one 15 mile loop. Several access points allow for trips of various lengths. Call the district office for specific information.
High water levels make for difficult crossings. Select crossings carefully. Check weather for heavy rain to prevent being trapped on the opposite side of the river from your vehicle. Campsites are available at Whetstone Horse Camp on the South Carolina side and Willis Knob Horse Camp on the Georgia side.
Commercial rides may require a special use permit and route approval by the district ranger.
Directions: From Walhalla, Go north 6 miles on State Highway 28. Turn left onto Whetstone Road. Go straight at the four way stop. Pavement will end. A sign for Whetstone Horse Camp will be on the left about 3/4 mile down the gravel road. The day use parking is on the right.
