The Chattooga River tract is 565 acres of natural hardwood timber and planted loblolly pines located on Fullerton Road in Lyerly. This tract offers great internal access, merchantable hardwood and pine timber, power on-site to establish a camp, wild game and stunning views around every turn. The location of the property affords a new owner easy and convenient access to several larger surrounding cities; Rome, Gadsden, Ft. Payne, and LaFayette are all within an hour drive of the property, Weiss Lake is just a few minutes down the road. This tract is an exceptional opportunity for someone in search of a diverse piece of property to serve as an investment and recreational property!
The drive into the property down Fullerton Road is as picturesque as the property itself; one of the only cotton farms in Chattooga County is adjacent to the property along the north boundary with several large timber tracts to the south and the east. This property is truly secluded. The peak of Bogan Mountain is a quarter mile to the southeast, which gives the property its rolling and hilly topography.
There is approximately 250 acres of once-thinned loblolly pines on the property that appear to be 16-17 years of age. The pine stands in their entirety seem to be productive, in good health and should be due for a second thinning in 5 to 6 years. The rolling hills of the tract are full of white oaks, hickory, and other mature hardwood species. Other than timber value, the hardwoods on the tract are worth their weight in gold for the hard mast they produce for the deer and turkeys in the surrounding area.
The westernmost boundary of the property is 1400 feet of frontage on the Chattooga River, which is a tributary river of Weiss Lake. This portion of the Chattooga River is navigable by kayak or small boat and offers fishing opportunities for bass, bream and catfish.
The Chattooga River Tract is truly a special piece of land that offers a multitude of recreational and investment opportunities. Trail rides for the family , turkey hunting in the spring, deer in the fall, hogs year-round, fishing on the Chattooga River, and just owning a place to getaway and truly be away from it all, are just a few of the highlights of this premier tract.
