Wildflowers in bloom on the Georgia Mountain Parkway
You will enjoy the breathtaking scenic beauty along the Georgia Mountain Parkway as you travel along the Zell Miller Parkway (Hwy 515/76) north from Atlanta’s Highway 575, which becomes Highway 515 to the North Georgia Mountains. The Georgia Mountain Parkway begins in Pickens County, gently climbing up Highway 515/76 through Gilmer, Fannin, Union, and into Towns Counties. The Georgia Mountain Parkway travels through the Southern Appalachian towns of Jasper, Talking Rock, Ellijay, Blue Ridge, McCaysville, Blairsville, Young Harris and Hiawassee.
Mountains of outdoor activities in the Chattahoochee National Forest await you along the highway such as: hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, tubing, fishing, and swimming. Along with scenic mountain views, the Georgia Mountain Parkway provides local flavor at a variety of dining establishments; shopping in quaint mountain craft, antique and art galleries & shops; accommodations at luxurious mountain resorts, cozy cabins or bed & breakfasts; and a plethora of country festivals featuring Appalachian culture through products such as apples, crafts, marble, and bluegrass and country music.
