Blue Ridge Scenic Railway
Always a crowd pleaser for families and couples alike, The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway offers fall leaf viewing trips. The route north follows the Toccoa River and winds through pristine farmland until it reaches McCaysville, GA and Copper Hill, TN for a lunch and strolling stop before heading back to the Depot in Blue Ridge.
Ada Street to Curtis Switch
From downtown Blue Ridge, the start of Ada Street winds through scenic countryside views all the way out to another section of the Toccoa River at Curtis Switch. Along the way looking west, you can see over Mercier Orchards rolling apple orchard, and in the distance the ridges of the Cohutta Wilderness. Curtis Switch has a small canoe boat launch that makes for a nice perch to dip your toes in the chilly water and watch fall leaves drift like little boats in the current of the Toccoa River. Or at the right time of day see the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway train pass by on the other side of the river.
