The gravel/dirt Juliette (River) Road starts near Juliette, GA along the Ocmulgee River. It travels through the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge. Keep your eyes and ears out for endangered Red-cockaded woodpeckers.
The PNWR is a monument to erosion. Poor land practices starting with antebellum era cotton farms (which cleared the forest) and the boll weevil (which cleared the cotton) caused massive erosion leading to abandonment of the land. The federal government stepped in to rehabilitate the forest during the depression and today the forest is reestablished, serving as a haven for wildlife.
