Rich with Native American roots and abundant wildlife, Fightingtown Creek rises 2,000 feet above elevation and runs from the Eastern slopes of the Cohuttas in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Gilmer County through Northwest Blue Ridge to McCaysville before it joins with the Toccoa River in Georgia and the Ocoee River in Tennessee. There is some debate on the origin of the name, but regardless of the area being named after warring tribal leaders or frogs with an attitude, there is no dispute about the beauty of the land that surrounds this lively brook!
Owning property along Fightingtown creek provides you a secluded escape, with proximity to town. Here you can create a private oasis along the lush banks of the river to enjoy all the sights and sounds of nature. In the summertime you can tube or kayak the river and anglers will love the year-round challenge of fishing for native and stocked trout. Don’t miss the opportunity to live here. You’ll be thankful you did!
