Written Directions

Start in "Talking Rock" Georgia (just northwest of Jasper, GA) and head east on Georgia Route 136 ... PAY ATTENTION to the signs to stay on 136 through the next 5 miles or so! Once you make the left at the "T" at Burnt Mountain Road, you can relax and enjoy the ride for the next 15 miles througt the mountains. In Dawson county, you will need to make a right at another "T", then bear off to the left to follow 136. In about 5 miles, you will come to a 4-way stop at Hwy. 9, and you can go left to Dahlonega, but I recommend going another 4 miles or so to Auraria Road, a left turn just as you come into sight of GA 400. this parallels 9 and 400, and I consider it the most scenic route, though it doesn't have the curves of 9.

Scenery

Breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge region. In the winter, Amicalola Falls may be seen briefly from about 10 miles away.

Drive Enjoyment

Good pavement without any significant rough spots. Curves are sweeping, not twisty. Grade is significant in spots, but no problem for most motorcycles. Overall, the grades make this a challenging drive for most 4-wheeled vehicles, but is a good leisurely ride on two. You seldom encounter much in the way of traffic.

Tourism Opportunities

Not much as far as stores once you leave Talking Rock, until you get to Dawson County. Nice Scenic turnout about 10 miles in.

One of my favorite rides. Great views with enough turns and elevation changes to keep me interested. Very little traffic most of the time. My only complaint is that the road doesn't keep going.

Ran the 136 yesterday, nice ride through farm land and mountains. Very little traffic. A couple of hard truns but well marked and really not much of a problem. A very nice ride.
