Highlights

Highlight: Pear Orchard Road
Just outside Toccoa lies Pear Orchard Road. Popular with hunters, hikers, and mountain bikers, this seasonal side trail off Currahee Mountain Road is a short but fun, and rarely used trail. It provides access to numerous hiking and mountain biking trails including the Frady Branch Equestrian and Bike Trail System. Pear Orchard Road also features two of the only three trailside camping areas in this part of the forest. Whether you're looking for a secluded camping area or just out hiking or biking, check out Pear Orchard Road when 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!
