About Currahee Mountain:

Located in the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area, this convenient and user-friendly area has an amazing amount of climbing for such a small area.
Nearest town or city: Toccoa
Directions: Currahee is primarily accessed from the East, off of Highway 123. Anyone coming from South Carolina should make their way to Highway 123 via 85 and follow it through Seneca and Westminster to the far side of Toccoa. Anyone coming from the South or West can make it to 123 via Georgia 17, and then taking a left at the 123 intersection. The turnoff to Currahee mountain is about a mile from the intersection of 17 and 123. The mountain is completely obvious from the intersection, and there is also a nice Subway and gas station if you need to fill up your tank or belly. Go west on 123 after the intersection and there will be a turnoff to Colonel Something-or-other Memorial Trail on your left. This turn will appear almost immediately after 123 becomes two lanes west of Toccoa. Follow the dirt trail up for about 15 minutes and you'll be at a small gravel parking lot. Access to the slab area is made via the obvious trail which leads around the left side of the antennae. Follow this trail down and around to the right and you will pass a lookout, then continue down and right to reach the top of the slab. The Brick Wall is farther to the right of the slab. You can make your way to the slab and then continue traversing to the right, or you can go directly down to the Brick Wall by following the trail to the right of the antennae.
