Blue Ridge Georgia

Recommended Posts

Just returned from a RV trip to Blue Ridge GA. First time there for us. Drove to Desoto Falls and hiked to both lower and upper falls. Explored Deloniga Ga and the Gold Museum. Explored Ama cola Falls and drove to the top, then hiked up from the bottom, and I will say it is the most impressive falls I have seen around the central south. Also explored and hiked to the longest swinging bridge East o the Mississippi River. It was the roughest 3 1/2 mile drive into the bridge I have driven over in a while. Then about 3/4-mile hike to the bridge over the Taccoa River in the North East Gorgia mountains. When that river hits the TN line the name changes to the Ocoee River. 

Only a 31/2 to 4 hr drive from Middle TN. Drove to Dalton Ga then drove East. Come back through Cleveland TN, then thru Chattanooga then into Murfreesboro. Went by Dawsonville Ga but didn't go see Wild Bill Elliott from Dawsonville. Wondered if he had a little Museum there but didn't take the time to go see. Lots of people are traveling there now since Gatlinburg is so crowded. Stayed 5 days. Not as much to do as in Pigeon Forge or G-burg though. I still had a good time.

Thanks for the report.

We did this many years ago when the kids were 7 and 8 years old. Also stoped by the Lodge cast iron store in South Pittsburg.

I lived in North GA (Hiawassee and Blairsville) for many years. You were in my old stomping grounds. There is a lot of things to see and do. 

There are some great campgrounds, water falls, and hiking trails around. And each small town has some unique things to see and do.

Having grown up as the son of a huge Bill Elliott fan I can confirm to you that he has a museum and shop down there. I spent many weekends there as a youth with my Dad. 

There is also a pretty decent lodge in Amicalola Falls State Park.
