Overview

Just outside of Ellijay, Georgia, and immediately north of Amicalola Falls State Park lies Old Bucktown Road. Part of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains which extend 550 miles from Georgia all the way to Pennsylvania, Old Bucktown Road is a rocky mountain pass that cuts through from Ellijay to Nimblewill. One of the rougher Forest Service roads left in Georgia, this is a great trail for beginner offroad drivers or for someone looking to test out a new rig without being too rough or too remote. Additionally, any hikers or history buffs in your group will be delighted to see that this road also offers access to the famous Appalachian Trail, the 2100 mile hiking trail from Georgia to Maine.
