Highlight: Grassy Gap Road
One of the less frequently traveled Forest Service roads, Grassy Gap Road is another entrance to the popular Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Climbing 1200 feet up Gooch Mountain, there are stunning views overlooking the ridge, especially in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees. Connecting to Coopers Gap Road which offers access to the famous Appalachian Trail, Grassy Gap Road is a fun way into the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area for those looking for a rougher ride than the average Forest Service road.

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!
