6 Gap Georgia help!!
My brother and I will be spending 10
days on our motorcycles (June 1-10) in the NC/TN area and plan to take 2-3 days of the trip this year and visit north Georgia - specifically we will be riding the six gap area and then whatever else we find.
Our targeted area (for north Georgia) is north of a line from Blue Ridge thru Suches and Helen and up to Mountain city. Basically, we like to ride 150 - 200 miles per day and sightsee along the way (sightseeing is almost ALWAYS
limited to out of the way scenic places, hikes, waterfalls, overlooks, mountain tops, etc... rather than super busy touristy places). We have one hard and fast "food rule" that we will avoid chain eateries at all costs and eat at
local places. We typically stay in a camp ground, or cabin, or hotel if not too expensive. We enjoy riding into camp near the end of the day, starting a campfire and sharing a few beers or a bottle of wine by the fire while we
plan the next day. We both have families and work very hard, so we look forward to relaxing and enjoying the ride
and scenery during this trip (our third annual).
Anyway, with that in mind... could you recommend, perhaps:
1. A place to stay for 2-3 days as a base camp for that area
2. Awesome places to stop for food
3. MUST-SEE scenery stops
4. Routes to go along with the above 3
Sorry for the lengthy post!!!
Thank you in advance!
