About Chilhowee:

It's a fun little area with some easy to moderate problems. My main concern with the area is that the local rednecks party up there as well so watch out for glass. I am currently talking with the local rangers about scheduling a clean up day, and asking them to enforce the cherokee national forest rules more strictly.
Nearest town or city: Ocoee
Directions: From Cleveland take highway 64 toward ocoee and turn left at the chilhowee ranger station. follow that up the mountain, and when it splits to a gravel road take the gravel road approx 2-4 miles until you see a semicircle face with grafitti on it. Park here, and follow the trail off to the right of the semi circle to the top of the face and you'll immediately see The Ex down to your right. Once again watch for glass, as people in this area have no respect for nature.
