Wagon Wheel Ridge

Stuff to do in North Georgia

Wagon Wheel Ridge is only about 12 miles from Ellijay in Gilmer County, Georgia.
Gilmer County is the Apple Capital of Georgia and Ellijay is home to the
Georgia Apple Festival
held two weekends in October.
There are Apple Houses all along the highways wth fresh and canned produce, gifts, baked goods, and other treats. Ellijay also has numerous antique shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Wagon Wheel Ridge is also convenient to Amicalola Falls, Dawsonville, Dahlonega, and Blue Ridge, each with their own attractions. Go antiquing to your hearts' content, ride the scenic railway or try the Swan Drive-In Theater in Blue Ridge. Visit the North Georgia Premium Outlet stores and the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame in Dawsonville. Pan for gold and shop antiques in Dahlonega.

You will find plenty of close-by sightseeing, hiking, rafting, kayaking,
boating, and fishing, not to mention touristing and shopping.
