March 18, 2017, Japanese Paper Plant Trip Cancelled

Posted under: Northeast Georgia .

The Japanese Plant trip to Rabun County has been cancelled. The plants bloomed early this year and none are expected to be blooming on the scheduled date.  We are working on a possible alternate trip which we would post here.

Description: The Japanese Paper Plants are located in the National Forest of Rabun Co.  They were introduced into Ga. in the early 1900’s and planted at an old home site.  They have naturalized along Wolf Creek for 4 miles, and  bloom the first 3 weeks of March.  This site is near the Wolf Creek Baptist Church which was built in 1851. The largest patch of plants are one half mile from the church.

Facilities:  No

Difficulty: Easy

Bring: Lunch, water, camera

Directions:  From Tallulah Falls, GA in Rabun County,  proceed N on 441 approx. 4 miles to the Lakemont sign, turn Right on Wolf Creek Rd., go 3.6 miles to Wolf Creek Baptist Church sign, turn onto the church road and go 1 mile to the church parking lot.
