Bowater Pocket Wildernesses

To help meet the growing demands for recreation and to demonstrate that forests can offer many opportunities, Bowater has established and maintains scenic hiking trails. Several of these trails wind through Pocket Wilderness areas that have been set aside by Bowater for preservation in their natural states. Trails are for foot traffic only, and camp only in designated area. No hunting or firearms.

  1. Bacon Ridge
  2. Piney River Trail
  3. Laurel-Snow
  4. North Chickamauga
  5. Stinging Fork
  6. Virgin Falls
The Honey Creek pocket wilderness is now a part of the Big South Fork. Here is a clickable Google map/image/topo. Here are EasyGPS waypoints (.gpx) or maptech waypoints (.mxf) for the various trail heads.



Scanned maps and information from Bowater Trails Brochure. Trails were developed in the 1970's, see wikipedia info. Most of these areas are now state natural areas or part of the Cumberland Trail. For more information, contact Bowater Public Relations in Calhoun, TN.
