River crossings get knee to waist deep after Rough Creek. The current flow is significantly stronger after Rough Creek. In high water this last section to the end is very dangerous. These photographs were taken at "normal" levels.

Conasauga River Trail - Cohutta Wilderness is beautiful all seasons of the year, but especially pretty in the fall with all the evergreens and deciduous trees. Water temperatures drop, but the hearty will enjoy the cooler temps and the crowds are fewer.
