“South of the Etowah River the Blue Trail is mostly forest road; fording the river might be difficult except in a drought”— Lost Justpastnowhere
The GPS here starts at the point where the trail diverges from the Orange Trail. The Blue Trail continues north as a dirt road. Shortly after this intersection, the Pink Trail branches off to the right. About 0.6 miles after this intersection, you have the option of taking the Purple Trail singletrack (to the left) or the Blue Trail (South) singletrack (to the right). Both are roughly 200 ft singletrack descents down to the Etowah River.
Once you reach the Etowah River, the Blue Trail (South) becomes a forest road again. At a four-way junction (with the Purple Trail and Railroad Road), the Blue Trail continues to the north where you should ford the Etowah River.
Nominally, the Etowah River can be forded at this point to access the Blue Trail (North) and Yellow Trail on the north side of the river, but the river can easily be waist deep or higher with fast currents. So maybe wait for a warm day after a dry spell to try it.
