What you'll do

We'll meet beside the Blue Ridge train station tracks on West Main Street, Blue Ridge, GA and if there are no parking places available the second option is around the corner behind TruFitness. I will have a placard on my vehicle "Dry Branch Lake Loop" for easy identification. From there, I will drive you to the destination, which is Dry Branch Lake Loop in Blue Ridge, GA. Not many locals even know about this marvelous spot, much less tourists, which offers an amazing walking/biking paved, easy trail, with beautiful lake overlooks and almost constant forest shade. It only takes 10 minutes to arrive at our location, down a partially paved, then forest service road. We'll park in the day camping area, which provides a large parking area. Bathrooms, unfortunately, are not available at the Lake Loop so please plan accordingly. Guests are welcome to rent the touring bikes at this location or take a relaxing walk around the spectacular lake loop trail. Afterwards we can relax by the lake (we'll be in a lovely cove area of the lake), sit by a fire, even make s'mores if you'd like. Those of you who love to fish, this is a great spot for catching bass, catfish, crappy and trout. After everyone has had their fun, we'll return to our original meeting parking spot in Blue Ridge, GA. My pleasure is making your outing as special and tailored exactly for your total enjoyment!

Nancy

I moved to the mountains of Blue Ridge, GA 17 years ago. I've always been incredibly active in the outdoors, exploring all the local waterfalls, lakes, rivers, amazing forest trails and beautiful, bucolic drives. I personally have explored almost every lake, creek and amazing trail in our area. The water in the rivers and lakes is a beautiful emerald-green, year-round, creating outstanding photos. My skill is to focus on short easy hikes, walks or non-mountain biking on gentle, well-packed or paved, trails, natural foliage up close and personal, always in places difficult to find. I am expert in locations unknown even to local folk, such as Dry Branch Lake Loop, and have enough photography knowledge to assist as well. Dry Branch Lake Loop offers walking, biking or leisurely relaxing by the lake. My promise is to exceed you expectations!

Where you'll be

We'll be exploring Dry Branch Lake Loop, with an awesome paved trail and close-up views or seating by the lake in a secluded cove. Most resident are not even aware of this special location and exploring this area can be extremely confusing for novices, because of the one-lane forest road portion and poor signage at the trail. Since I have explored this area for years, I am expert on all aspects of bike renting, the trail and lake activities.
