Watershed Maps

The entire Hiwassee River basin drains 2,700 square miles of land, much of which lies in the Chattahoochee (Georgia), Nantahala (North Carolina), and Cherokee (Tennessee) National Forests. HRWC’s work is primarily focused in the upper 1,006 square miles of the upper Hiwassee River watershed in Towns and Union counties in north Georgia and Clay and Cherokee counties in southwestern North Carolina. The Hiwassee River watershed is a small part of the Tennessee, Ohio and Mississippi watersheds.
