Directions to:
Springer Mountain
Shortest access path to the top of Springer Mountain, this trail has scenic views, shelter and privy.

Day Use area sign
This sign provides a detailed, accurate map for hikers of the trails near the day use area.
To get to the west end of Forest Service Road 42 take 575/515 north to Highway 52, just past the second light in Ellijay. This quickly joins the Cartecay River as it heads east towards Springer Mountain. Turn left on Roy Road at the Chevron Station. Follow this until the second stop sign (about 8 miles). The road curves repeatedly. At the second stop sign (this is Doublehead Gap Road, but the sign has been missing for ten years) take the right down to the Baptist Church. A National Forest sign indicates the start of the well maintained dirt road. Continue on this road for 6.5 miles to the day use parking area.
