The Trail Creek Watershed

Trail Creek

The Trail Creek watershed is 32.9 square kilometers in area. It includes East Fork Trail Creek and West Fork Trail Creek (both 4.8 km in length) which converge to form Trail Creek (3.2 km in length) flowing from the northeast to the southwest. The creek enters the North Oconee River as it flows south through downtown Athens. The upper reaches of the East and West Forks are in forest, industrial and agricultural land use (pasture) and the lower reaches are predominately in urban land use.
