Dawsonville is situated just north of Atlanta along Georgia's Hospitality Highway. It is home to the Southern Terminus of the 2,146-mile Appalachian Trail, Amicalola Falls State Park with a waterfall that drops 729 feet into a reflection pool, and the Dawsonville Moonshine Distillery. 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.
