North Georgia mountain resort is a relaxing escape



Food to go seems a Forrest Hills specialty.

I recommend taking their picnic basket to the Edge of the World. You can get there in 15 minutes.

Class IV rapids at this Edge of the World, gravel parking lot and ramp for your canoe or kayak.

ADA access, and picnic spots too on this Amicalola River Trail.

That’s the name of the 72-foot waterfall, another walking, gazing and picnicking spot nearby.

Launch a hike of 2,184 miles along the Appalachian Trail because this is the starting point.

Dahlonega and Dawsonville are the nearby towns. If you leave the resort that is.

Should you think about the spelling, here’s a perspective: most of us learned to spell the synonym for woods with one letter R.

For Rest is the notion here. I’m a bit curious too how many babies might be named Forrest.

Who’s telling?
