Begin at Hwy 53 in Dawsonville, GA. Follow Hwy 53 east from Dawsonville thru Gainesville, Oakwood, Braselton to Winder, GA. In Winder Hwy 11 will merge into Hwy 53. 53/11 will turn right at light just over the railroad tracks and then 11 will turn off to the right. Follow Hwy 11 from Winder thru Monroe to Social Circle, you will see the Blue Willow Inn on the left in downtown. Continue thru Social Circle to Monticello, GA. In Monticello turn right onto Hwy 83. Follow 83 to 4 way intersection with Hwy 23. Turn left onto Hwy 23 (use caution Hwy 83 has stop signs but Hwy 23 does not so BE CAREFUL). Follow Hwy 23 a short distance to intersection with Juliette Rd. Turn left onto Juliette Rd and then turn right just before the railroad tracks into the old town of Juliette. Your here now have a GREAT meal at the Whistle Stop and then go across the tracks to the old mill and see the motorcycle museum and the unbelievable waterfalls. HAVE FUN!!
This is a trip of good open road riding. Very good scenery of rural GA farm and pasture lands mixed with several small southern Georgia towns.
Very good roads through open country. Straight to sweeping roads. Two lane road with smooth riding!
Sight seeing in several old small southern Georgia towns. Good food in several locations. See the Blue Willow Inn @ Social Circle, GA. Also, don't miss the Whistle Stop Cafe in Juliette, GA - it's the namesake of this ride ("late lunch cruise") and check out the old mill motorcycle museum accross the railroad tracks. The food is absolutely GREAT! Special Note: When you go home, reverse the route or if you're in a hurry then go west a short ways and hit Interstate 75 for the quick and boring trip. If this is the way you choose the stop at exit 201 and eat again at Buckners family style and listen to some great southern gospel music afterwards.
