Default Rottenwood Creek / Bob Callahan Trail

I had the day off of work today to relax. Unfortunately, the Hooch was blown out. I decided to visit a trail near the house along Rottenwood Creek. As the name implies, it has the potential to be poluted, littered and downright nasty at times. However, I occasionally catch some nice baby bass, trout and sunfish there, and the topography is really stunning.


Past Catches:





I don't mean to hotspot the area, but it is truly beautiful to have in an urban setting and I'm hoping if more people come to enjoy it as I will, it will get the help it needs.


Starting off on the north end, I found a little cairn (stack of trail rocks) that was pretty cool:




Downstream from that, a found a tributary coming from the Cobb Parkway area that shows off a pollution/runoff source:




Some Ducks enjoying it:



The footbridge under Akers Mill / Interstate North:




A heron:




Further down the creek was already healing itself and looked great:








Further down is the intersection with the Hooch:




On the way back, I took a pic from the footbridge again looking upstream and yesterday's rain was already washing out:




It is a great area for a good walk or bike, and i have caught or seen lots of our warmwater friends in there. Next time you are at the NRA park at Cobb Parkway / Paces, have a walk upstream and check it out.

Great little creek. Watch out for timber rattlers though. I ran into a 5 footer earlier this week over there. There was also a copperhead swimming around

Don't forget to look out for snapping/aligator turtles. Saw one a few years ago the size of a washtub.......

I like the pic of your dog. Looks just like mine when she is in the water. It's almost like she is saying "Is it ok for me to be in the water now, or are you still fishing?".

I see the stacked of rocks frequently on the Hiwassee, I was told that it is to change your luck, you stack the rocks up and when the water rises and knocks the stones over your luck will change. Warning if you knock over someone elses stack their bad luck will become yours.

Nice Mike. Lush little urban wilderness.

Upstate.
I'm having a hard time seeing that snake as a timber rattler.

Sorry I meant ratting cobra. If its rattling, it don't make a difference what kind of snake it is to me. Should have known, if it was venomous those rabunites would have already found it and took it back to their church
