Enveloping an area that branches into its three outlining states (North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina), Ellicott Rock Wilderness is an expanse of contrasting verdure, veined with the heartbeats of the endemic, rich animal fauna. Unfortunately, despite how pristine the vegetative landscape may look from your birds-eye view atop of Fork Mountain, Ellicott Rock WIlderness has been severely marred by man’s wielding infrastructure, still recovering from years of heavy logging. Be mindful, be respectful, and be self aware; every environmental action you do, conscious or otherwise, has ripples.
