Hickey Gap - Hiking
An easy-to-reach swim spot hidden in the Cohutta Wilderness, Hickey Gap offers an incredible place to take a summertime dip.
The physical trail is short, but those looking for a longer option can continue downstream using the river as a guide.
Destination Distance From Downtown
Mostly flat trail with a steep embankment at the end.
Time To Complete
Less than a mile long, the trail is relatively flat until the very end where ropes and roots are utilized to climb down a cliff beside the waterfall.
The trail is open year-round but is best in the spring or summer when the water is flower and temperature warm enough to warrant jumping in.
