This is a run I do when I have all day to get into the mountains. It starts off at the Rabbit Town Cafe , Which has an excellent country breakfast , and the ride from there is what I dream about at night . Just awesome !
Start out at Riders Hill in Dahlonega, head up 60, pass Stone Pile Gap & Wolf Pen Gap, Turn on to Skeenah Gap rd to head to Blairsville. In Blairsville head back south on 129. A few miles outside of Blairsville you'll find Jim's Smokin Que (some of the best Bar-b-Que around) then turn left on 180. Take take 180 to 75 to Helen, jump back on the Richard Russel Pkwy back to 180 then follow 129 down blood mountain. At Turners Corner turn right to head back to 60 at the Stone pile, then back the rest of the way down 60 back to Riders Hill in Dahlonega. Great ride with every type of road you could want (about 3 hour ride).
