Not much to do on this one other than a bypass of the main road. However, there are the 2 side roads with possible camping access if you need some camping out this way. I wouldn't make the trip for this road alone. Right near Brasstown Falls.

The road is graveled and well maintained. It can be easily done in any type of vehicle including cars. There are no picnic areas or trail heads. This is not a destination road that will lead you to anything exciting but if you are just looking to get out of the house and want to get off the paved roads for a bit its worth a drive. There are some nice views in the winter time overlooking the area towards HWY 76 as you come onto the road from the Unity Church Rd side. The other end of the road will lead you to the Brass town falls area and there is hiking in this are as well as some scenic areas next to the river and falls for picnics.

There was absolutely nothing to see or do along this trail. It got us out of the house during the pandemic, so that was good. But no hiking area, no place to park and eat lunch, nothing to see --not so much as a stream. Also, one of the roads was closed down, but a turnoff still brought us back to civilization. Don't waste your time.

Took a quick ride down here on the way to Brasstown Falls right next to this trail, road is very well maintained and in great shape. This is normally a side road, but the main road is under construction so this trail is now the only way to get from Unity Church Road to Brasstown Road where the falls are. Also took both side trails (Waypoints 2 and 3) which are short dead end roads with little turn arounds. Great for a picnic or camping as long as your not blocking the road.
