This double-loop trail follows scenic Bear Creek through hemlock-cove hardwood forests and passes by the Gennett Poplar, an immense, old-growth yellow poplar. The 2-mile round trip to the "Big Poplar" makes a great family outing. Sections of the trail are narrow, steep, and the path crosses several streams.
Directions: From Ellijay, Take GA Hwy. 52 west for 5 miles. Turn right at the Bear Creek campground sign onto Gates Chapel Road and go 4.6 miles. Turn right onto Forest Service Road 241 and go about 2 miles to the trailhead parking area at the end of the road.
Distance: 6.7 miles
