Outdoor Adventures

Adventure seekers can view waterfalls and unwind with water sports. Nature lovers can photograph the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi and take to miles of trails for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking, including the Appalachian Trail. Refresh in lakes and rivers with lazy tubing, canoeing and kayaking, or fishing. Golfers enjoy the fairways of Dahlonega’s picturesque Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Our Mountain roadways are now famous for their challenging bicycling terrain hosting near 3,000 cyclists for the annual fall Six Gap Century Bike Ride. Come outdoors just for the fresh air of the Mountains and Chattahoochee National Forest.
