Description

This is a great spot to bring the whole family for hiking, fishing, and even off-roading if you have a taste for that. Potts Mountain Jeep Road is near The Pines Campground, Barbours Creek, and Lipes Branch Trail.

Consider having someone with a high-clearance vehicle drop you off at the top of FS 176 to avoid a long and arduous forest service road slog from the campground to the beginning of the trail.
