Start your route in the town of Blue Ridge, GA. From Blue Ridge head north on route 5 to Copperhill, TN. From Copperhill take US 74/64 west towards (but not all the way to) Chattanooga, TN for a nice curvy ride that follows multiple bodies of water. When you get to the town of Ocoee, TN you will come to the intersection of US 74 and US 411 (AKA route 33). Take US 411 south back over into Georgia and on to Chatsworth, GA at which point you want to take a left (east) on Highway 52 (AKA route 2) through Ft. Mountain state park to the route's end point of Ellijay. Note: The 411 part of the ride is just highway but the rest of the ride makes it worthwhile.
Really nice scenery on the northern side of this route and especially nice when you pass through the Fort Mountain State Park area.
The roads on this loop are all well maintained and there are countless twists and turns on this route.
Several small restaurants and gas stations along with a couple of small towns. Never more than 10 miles from food/fuel/restrooms.
