Overview

One of the more scenic mountainous trails in Georgia, Coopers Gap Road, is the main eastern route in and out of the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area. Breathtaking views of ridges and valleys off both sides throughout much of the ride, this trail twice crosses paths with the famous Appalachian Trail - a 2,200 hiking trail from Georgia to Maine. With multiple camping areas and two parking areas, Coopers Gap Road is an excellent route for day hikes, overnight hikes, or just a scenic ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains.
