18. The Indian Mountain-Garner Tract
Date of purchase: December 3, 2001
Location: Cherokee County; Township 12S, Range 11E, Section1
THE INDIAN MOUNTAIN-GARNER TRACT consists of 80 acres of mountainous upland hardwood forest along a route which will permit the connection of the Pinhoti Trail in the Talladega National Forest of Alabama with the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. This tract serves as an addition to adjacent Indian Mountain Tract. These tracts provide an opportunity for long distance hiking, nature study, primitive camping and hunting.
The Indian Mountain-Garner Tract is only accessible through the hiking trails of the adjacent Indian Mountain Tract. The best access to the Indian Mountain Tract is off US Hwy 278 northeast of Piedmont, AL. Traveling northeast on Hwy. 278 turn north on Cherokee county road 45, travel approximately 0.6 mile and turn east on County Rd 8. The Pinhoti trail crosses the road approximately 2.2 miles down County Road 8 or 0.7 mile west of Salem Church. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail.
