Trail Information


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.

Great trail. Not too hard, but definitely not a cake walk. I’d recommend 4wd/ full time AWD just for preparations sake, especially in the summer when it’s prone to rain at any point here in GA. One of the steepest trails I have run across thus far. Great if you’re a bird watcher, as I saw what I believe to be a Coopers Hawk or Osprey. Also plenty of turtles!

Fun easy ride with a great connecting trail (Gumlog Gap). Going from east to west it is very steep at the beginning. While it is possible in 2WD, 4WD stronlgly recommended especially if wet just due to how steep it is.
