Fodor's Review

Beginning and ending in Helen, the Russell-Brasstown Scenic Byway is a 41-mi loop through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in northeastern Georgia. Start the counterclockwise drive from GA17/74 north of Helen, turn left on GA 180, left again at GA 348, and another left at GA 75 Alternate back to Helen. The loop passes the Raven Cliff Wilderness, wildlife management areas, the headwaters of the Chattahoochee River, a section of the Appalachian Trail, and goes

near the state parks of Vogel, Unicoi, Smithgall Woods, and Brasstown Bald Mountain.
