Directions to Amicalola River Trail

There are a number of scenic roads to access this trail. From 575 drive north to Route 108. Turn right (east) on 108. Continue straight at the four way stop. This is now GA. 53. This scenic drive winds past the historic Tate House, which sits on the site of the first courthouse in Cherokee Georgia (1830). Shortly after you cross the county line the road begins to drop down to the Amicalola River.

From the first light on Georgia 400 north of the Outlet Mall, take GA 53 west. In downtown Dawsonville turn left, circle the courthouse and continue west on GA 53. The road begins to descend into the Amicalola River Watershed. The new trailhead parking is on your right, before the bridge over the river. After parking go to the north end of the lot and follow the gravel road to the boat dock. The trailhead is on the left.
