Fort Mountain State Park

LOCATION: Chatsworth, GA

Fort Mountain is named for a mysterious wall constructed along the western slope of the peak. The enigmatic structure has been attributed to various historical figures, but today most authorities believe the wall was constructed by Woodlands-era Indians between 500 BC and 500AD. It is similar to walls that existed around the top of Stone Mountain (Dekalb County), Rock Eagle and Rock Hawk (both Putnam County).

Visiting the enigmatic wall at Fort Mountain requires a moderate hike of .5 miles. The hike can be extended by visiting a fire tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and a viewing stand overlooking Georgia's Ridge and Valley section.

Highlight: Quarter mile of falls/cascades on the Big Rock Nature Trail

Time: Allow two hours for your visit
