Top 5 Experiences in April 2018
Get outside into the new spring green in Blue Ridge, Georgia
Spring in Blue Ridge is a great time to get out into the mountain sunshine, go for a wildflower hike, experience the beautiful blossoms in our woods and orchards and try your hand at trout fishing in The Trout Capital of Georgia.
Mercier Orchards offers free apple blossom tractor tours through the orchard, and lots of outdoor activities like a kid's race, LUNGevity benefit and a beautiful setting.
Georgia's Blue Ridge is surrounded by National Forest and hiking trails, and spring is a great time to get out into the wilderness to spot rare wildflowers blooming. Our self-guided map guides provide directions to trail access, including the Appalachian Trail, which begins right here. For a special treat, go for a waterfalls hike... spring rains make for the most spectacular waterfall experience of the whole year!
Come on up to Blue Ridge for the kickoff of Festival Season! TroutFest Blue Ridge in downtown City Park is a great day of family fun, lots of information on trout streams and guides around our area, plus activities all day Saturday, April 28th.
