Highlight: Duncan Ridge Road
Spanning the ridge across the Coopers Creek Wildlife Management Area, just north of Suches, Georgia, lies Duncan Ridge Road. This scenic mountain trail overlooks the valley to the south and runs the ridges of several mountains such as Wildcat Knob, Coosa Bald and Buckeye Knob. With access to four popular hiking trails - Duncan Ridge Trail, Coosa Backcountry Trail, Yellow Mountain Trail and Shope Gap Trail - and some good secluded camping areas, Duncan Ridge Road is a great addition to any trip through the mountains.

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!
