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! ...

If you think that living in proximity to town with a river running right through the center of it sounds dreamy, then you will absolutely love Ellijay! The Cartecay River, which began as a part of Ellijay River and turns into the Coosawattee River is a nineteen-mile class two whitewater river. Popular for outdoor recreation, canoers, tubers, and kayakers take to the river to run the rapids and take in the beautiful scenery the mountains and river provide. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you can choose to put-on the river with an outfitter on the Lower Cartecay and follow the river to Blackberry Mountain or if the water is high enough, you can choose to put on at Stegall Mill Road and exit at DNR. Speaking of Blackberry Mountain, this highly sought after gated community is accessed via a covered bridge over the Cartecay River.
Maybe a nice relaxing walk on the Cartecay River Loop Trail is more your speed, but be sure to bring a fishing pole and drop a line . ...
