Dawsonville is situated just north of Atlanta along GA’s Hospitality Highway. It is the Southern Terminus of the 2,146-mile Appalachian Trail and Amicalola Falls State Park with a waterfall that drops 729 feet into a reflection pool. Auto racing has a long history in this area and a popular destination for all NASCAR fans is Gordon Pirkle’s Dawsonville Poolroom. A short distance away is the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. In the fall, Dawsonville comes alive with Uncle Shuck’s and Buck’s Corn Mazes. Pumpkins in every size and shape can be found at Burt’s Farm and at Bradley’s Pumpkin Patch. For the less ambitious hiker, there is Dawson Forest and for the paddler, the Etowah and the Amicalola Rivers offer two great river adventures.
