Armuchee-Cohutta Ranger District

Armuchee-Cohutta Ranger District

The Armuchee-Cohutta Ranger District is one of the five ranger districts of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Armuchee is thought to be derived from the Cherokee word for "hominy," to be derived from the Choctaw word "alurnushi", meaning "hiding place" or mean the "land of the flowers." [ Georgia Place Names] by Kenneth K. Krakow, 3rd Edition (accessed November 2, 2006)] Cohutta is derived from the Cherokee word "cohutta", which means "frog" or could mean "a shed roof supported on poles." The district is spread through portions of Catoosa, Chattooga, Fannin, Floyd, Gilmer, Gordon, Murray, Walker and Whitfield Counties in Georgia. Some of the features within the borders of the district are the Big Frog Wilderness, the Cohutta Wilderness and the Rich Mountain Wilderness.

The current headquarters for the Armuchee-Cohutta Ranger District is located in Chatsworth, Georgia. The District offers a variety of outdoor activities including the Chestnut Mountain Shooting Range, Dry Creek Equestrian Tail, Pinhoti Trail, Houston Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Trail System, Keown Falls Day Use Area, Jack's River Trail and more.
