Starting from Clarkesville, GA. Depart Clarkesville on Ga State road 197, nice curves, fast & slow with a few blind curves and make sure you stop at Marks the Potter and feed the rainbow trout, then on to Batesville, Batesville( country cafe) is a 4-way Stop intersection, turn right and go north on GA 197. Very nice road, nice scenes and youll pass Lake Burton, at Lake Burton they do have stocked ponds if you wanted to stop and catch a nice Rainbow Trout. If you feel like going further, link this to the 64 via US441 and US28 (also mentioned on this site)
