Western NC/Northern GA Itenerary

Jump to last reply

Im thinking of a 10 day vacation to the mountains of Western NC and Northern GA next summer. Ive vacationed in the Blowing Rock/Boone area before as well as the Gatlinburg, TN side of the Smoky Mountains and seen a lot of the Smokies along with the Biltmore at Asheville, NC. I have not been down to the area south of Asheville and east of the Smokies and have not yet ventured into the Georgia Mountains. I live in the Washington DC, so im probably going to want to spend the night on the way down and back up probably in Virginia. So, heres what im thinking:

Day 1- Drive to South-western Virginia down I-81 or possibly push to Asheville, NC for the night.

Day 2- Drive to the town of Helen, GA

Day 2 through 6- Stay in Helen, GA to explore the North Georgia Mountains including Brasstown Bald, Anna Ruby Falls, Dahlonega, GA, Amicacola Falls, Tallugh Gorge, possible day-trip down to Stone Mountain near Atlanta

Day 6- Drive to Brevard, NC

Day 6 through 10- Stay in Brevard, NC to explore the Transylvania County waterfalls, Gorges State Park, day-trip to Chimney Rock, NC, Catalochee area of GSMNP, explore the areas of Highlands and Cashiers, NC, drive some of the Blue Ridge Parkway south of Asheville

Day 10-Route 29 through Virginia and Overnight in Virginia

Day 11- Home
