Know Before You Go
Access the trail from the end of Fire Service Road 816, just east of the town of Blue Ridge - it's a short hike to the bridge. Campsites line the water under the bridge, and prime spots go fast. No reservations.
If you’re a little more adventurous, park at the Benton MacKaye parking area on Ga. Hwy. 60 and take the three-mile trail (six miles roundtrip) to the north end of the bridge.
Finally, you can camp here! It’s primitive camping; first come; first served. Spots fill up fast along the river, but they are spectacular. The Toccoa River is known for its premier Trout fishing, so pack a pole and some bait.
