Vogel State Park, Blairsville, GA

For the best views of fall foliage, a trip to Blood Mountain is just what you need. Head to Vogel State Park, where the leaves transform into a rich blanket of yellow, red, and orange hues in the fall. There are multiple trails within the park that can take you deeper through the beautiful flora, including an easy loop that leads around the lake directly to Trahlyta Falls.

Fall Branch Falls, Cherry Log, GA

This short but sweet hike takes you through beautiful fall foliage and straight to the waterfall. It’s an easy hike with little topographical variation (just watch for the tree roots!), and typically takes around 30 minutes round-trip.

BJ Reece Orchards, Ellijay, GA

There’s nothing like freshly-picked apples to celebrate fall’s arrival. Here you can set out into the orchard and pick your fill of more than 10 delicious varieties of apples, or visit the market and bakery for a tasty home-grown snack.

Uncle Shuck’s Haunted Corn Maze, Dawsonville, GA

No fall road trip is complete without a spooky experience, and the haunted corn maze at Uncle Shuck’s is the perfect balance of scary and merriment. By the time you reach this part of your road trip, the sun should be setting (or perhaps has already disappeared), giving you a spooktacular in-the-dark experience through the corn maze. Even if you’re traveling alone, you won’t be walking the rows alone—there are plenty of ghouls and ghosts lurking nearby just waiting for their chance to surprise you.

Hall House Hotel, Dahlonega, GA

As one of the oldest buildings in town, Hall House Hotel provides cozy accommodations in a quaint boutique setting. Each room showcases the lodging’s history with a modern flair, including whirlpool tubs and other unique pieces that make each stay a one-of-a-kind experience.

Foothill Grill, Dahlonega, GA

Breakfast here makes it a little easier to get out of bed in the morning. Fill up on all your favorites, including biscuits, pancakes, eggs, omelets, and a variety of breakfast sandwiches. You’ll have plenty to choose from to fuel up for the day’s adventure.

Downtown Historic Helen, Helen, GA

Just a 40-minute drive northeast takes you to Georgia’s own little slice of Bavaria. This charming little town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains features German-inspired architecture and a variety of activities to fill your day. If you’re looking for some of the best fall scenery, head to Unicoi State Park just outside the town and hit the hiking trails. For a unique perspective, strap yourself to a zip line or hop aboard a hot air balloon and enjoy the brilliant fall canopy from above.

Ziplining adventure that lost us our keys ... worth it?
