Highlights

Highlight: Ivylog Gap Road
Just north of Blairsville can be found a little trail called Ivylog Gap Road. This easy, scenic trail follows the ridge between Ivylog Mountain, Juber Knob, Lynn Knob, Anderson Knob, and Mine Mountain and might even make you forgot you're so close to the megacity of Atlanta. Right next to the beautiful Lake Nottely known for trophy striper fishing, this trail connects all the way through to the town of Young Harris next to Brasstown Bald - the tallest mountain in all of Georgia with a lookout tower making it a popular attraction as well. So if you find yourself in the area and need to get away from the crowds and the pavement, give Ivylog Gap Road a look.

Q: Passed the western trailhead today, Since there are only 2 reviews of this road and both are 2 years old, is it still passable? I’m a relative novice!

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!
