About Cherry Log, Georgia

Georgia is a diverse county with a scenic coast, spectacular mountain ranges and cosmopolitan cities. To the northwest, Cherry Log’s rural surroundings make it a popular destination for outdoors enthusiasts, with miles of countryside to explore and some of the highest peaks in the county.

The area first became a popular retreat during the 19th century when it’s thought that mountain air was healthier – the cooler temperatures in the mountains here drew visitors hoping to escape the hot, humid summer weather in the cities.

Today people come from across the globe for the Georgia Apple Festival in neighboring Ellijay, or to hike the 2,179-mile-long Appalachian Trail which runs from here to Maine. They also come to dine at The Pink Pig—famous for serving up authentic Brunswick Stew and pit-cooked BBQ since the 1950s.

What to do in Cherry Log, Georgia

There are plenty of hiking trails to suit all abilities in the area, but hiking to Fall Branch Falls is a must—and it’s relatively easy. For something a little more challenging, the Appalachian Trail starts here. Or, you could take the kids on a hike to Amicalola Falls State Park.

The city of Ellijay is a short drive away and it’s here that the Georgia Apple Festival takes place over two weekends in October. This is a great family day out with a parade, antique car show, live music and hundreds of vendors selling local produce and handcrafted items—perfect for a souvenir of your vacation.

Fishing enthusiasts can head for one of the river creeks for trout fishing or Carters Lake for bass fishing. These tranquil pursuits are an ideal way to take in the spectacular surroundings.
