Highlight: Stephens Road
Just east of Cornelia lies Stephens Road. One of the few seasonal trails in the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area - a 17,000+ acre area known for primitive camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing - this trail follows the base of Red Root Mountain and offers access to the Ladyslipper Trail, a 6.3-mile hiking trail. Popular with hunters and hikers, Stephens Road also offers some secluded camping spots if all the campsites along the other more popular roads are taken.

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!
