In Late 2009 and Early 2010, I explored portions of the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area (Dawson, Fannin and Lumpkin Counties). The main focus of these trips was to camp with a few friends along Jones Creek Road. The dirt and gravel road network in the area appears to be well maintained. In dry weather most cars should not find it difficult. There are a few sections that, when wet, may require AWD or high clearance. There are two small stream crossings near the end of Jones Creek Road that, depending on runoff and stream flow, may be a bit too deep for the average car.
Please note that not all the roads in this area are mapped. I will release an updated file once I complete this area. Overall, I enjoyed my time around the Blue Ridge WMA.

I've been busy piecing together trail sections from previous trips, as well as planning a day trip (Saturday, 6th) to scout a few trails. Stay tuned for another trail post later this month.
