Highlight: Forest Service Road 97
A short and scenic trail along Campbell Mountain, Forest Service Road 97 is one of many Forest Service roads in the Blue Ridge Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Surrounded the entire way by sights and sounds of nature, there is a small clearing at the end perfect for a picnic or place to park while setting up camp for the night. Because of its close proximity to so many other trails and because it's slightly rougher than the average gravel road, this is an ideal trail to hit while out exploring for the day in the area.

Dave G.

Mapping Crew - Georgia

Dave is more of an explorer than a wheeler who loves to find remote locations to hike and kayak fish. Born and raised in Chicago for 21 years before moving to Atlanta, backroads and forests and mountains were a whole new experience and now he just can't get enough. When he's not fishing for stripers on Lake Lanier, you can find him in the mountains of North Georgia, Tennessee or South Carolina exploring and mapping backroads. Just look for the guy with the kayak on the top of the truck!
