The Cove Gorges of the Flint  Marker  



Text:

Pine Mountain to the south makes a complete loop forming a beautiful basin 4 miles in diameter known as "The Cove." It is joined on the south by Oak Mountain, another hard quartz ridge. Flint River has avoided an easier course on either side and has chosen this spot where it had to cut through four ridges, instead of two, forming picturesque rocky gorges.

WPA 18-F2



 
Notes:

It appears that this marker was ercted by the State of Georgia to replace the original WPA marker.
