Most people will find plenty of things to do while staying at the cabin. However, if you think you would like to get out and explore the area, there are plenty of things to keep you busy. Here are just a few of the attractions you will find closeby…
Morganton Point Recreation Park
The Morganton Point Recreation Area offers visitors year-round recreation opportunities including camping, picnicking, boating, swimming and hiking, all centered around beautiful Lake Blue Ridge. The lake is open to motor boats and jet skis, as well as non-motorized watercrafts.
Day-use hiking trails, including one that parallels the lakeshore, are ideal for short, relaxing strolls through the forest. The Appalachian and Benton MacKave trails pass through Fannin County and are easily accessed near the campground. The 3,290-acre lake is a popular activity for visitors to the Morganton Point Campground. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of bass and other fish. Visitors are encouraged to check with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for a complete listing of freshwater fishing regulations for Lake Blue Ridge.
Distance from Georgia Sunrise: 4.4 Miles
Spectacular scenery and hiking trails make this one of Georgia’s most popular state parks. At 729feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast. Visitors have choices on how to best view the tumbling waters, ranging from an accessible pathway to a challenging trail with staircases. Those who tackle the latter can join the park’s Canyon Climbers Club. An 8.5-mile trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the famous 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. Numerous other trails provide shorter day hikes.
