McIntosh Reserve Park is a 527-acre facility with over 14 miles of mulituse trails that wind through the reserve and alongside the Chattahoochee River. Visitors to the park can camp, hike and pinic year round. Other activities include biking, equestian, rafting, and model airplanes.
Starting near Whitesburg, GA at the junction of Rt27 & Rt5 take Rt5 South towards Roopville. Follow two miles to the entrance of McIntosh Reserve Park on the left. Enter the park and turn into the ranger station on the right. There is a small $2 fee for non Carroll county residents. Follow straight and pass the old home of Creek Chief WM McIntosh. At the fork take the right onto the dirt road and proceed straight up the hill to the small pavilion known as Council Bluff Picnic Area. Park here and enjoy the view!!
Look toward the river you will see a bench. From the bench look Due South and you will see a wooden foot bridge in the distance. This is your next check point. From the bridge heading 340, walk 65 paces toward the tree on the rocks with the distorted base. The base of this tree contains the MacIntosh Letterbox! Please check for critters and reach deep inside. The letterbox is behind a piece of wood.
The letterbox is on a well traveled trail so please be discreet!!
