One of the areas’s top attractions, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway takes riders on a nostalgic journey through the charming Appalachian foothills of North Georgia. Starting at the historic depot in downtown Blue Ridge, riders take a four-hour, 26-mile roundtrip journey along the Toccoa River through the Chattahoochee National Forest, enjoying the scenery and a few stops along the way.
Two of the greatest outdoor adventures in the world begin at the southern border of Fannin County in the Chattahoochee National Forest, with the start of the Appalachian Trail‘s 2,000+ mile journey to Maine and the Benton MacKaye Trail starting at the top of Springer Mountain.
Historic downtown Blue Ridge is a lively quaint town where you can come in from an outdoor adventure to savor a fine dining experience or micro brewery beer and burgers. Visitor and resident also enjoy boutique shopping, antiquing and gallery hopping.
