Ever hiked in Georgia's Piedmont? You'll be treated to lakes, rolling hills, and scattered woodlands. It's different from the mountains, and many hikers may fInd it boring. This hike close to Augusta's metro area is a primer for the area though. You'll be treated to views of Clarks Hill Lake, a canyon caused by soil erosion from poor farming activities, and a small natural rock dam on Boehler Creek. This hike is one of the easiest ones on this website. It is suitable for most ages and levels of experience, and the lay of the land is easy to traverse. This hike occurred on Saturday, December 6th, 2014. My plan was starting from Misteltoe State Park's Trailhead, to hike the Cliatt Creek Nature Trail to Rock Dam Trail, and then hike the Rock Dam Trail back to the trailhead. Along the way, there would be 4 fords - two of Cliatt Creek and two of Boehler Creek.
Dear readers: I have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort in this website and the Georgia Waterfalls Database the past five years. All of the work that has gone in keeping these websites updated with my latest trip reports has almost been like a full-time job. This has not allowed me to pick up a paid job to save up money for college, and therefore, I will unfortunately have to take out loans as I head to college this September. I plan to study environmental science and molecular biology, with a focus on environmental conservation, which is my passion. I want to do research that would ultimately benefit the well-being of the earth, as it feels like a mission to me. If you find the information on this website interesting, helpful, or time-saving, you can say "thanks" and help me out by clicking the button above and making a contribution. I will be very grateful for any amount of support you give, as all of it will apply toward my college tuition. Thank you!
Coming in 2021! (Delayed by Covid-19)
