Great Day Trips in Georgia To Take In a Jeep




With the start of Fall only a few weeks away, now is a great time to start planning a Fall Foliage day trip. There are so many places across the country to take in the sites of fall and one of the most fun ways is in a Jeep! One state that should be at the top of the list for a Fall Trip is Georgia. Georgia is a beautiful state that offers so many wonderful places to visit, from Mountains to State parks, there's so much to do while being able to social distance or even stay in your Jeep!


Some Great Places to Visit in Georgia on your Fall Trip 


  • A Driving Tour through the Chattahoochee National Forest: This trip is a fun and easy day trip, rounding out close to 103 miles that can be done in a day or split up into smaller adventures. April-October is the best time to visit the forest and it would also make a great camping destination as well. *Camping with a Jeep is so much fun and extremely easy to do with the addition of the add-on camper. 

  • Toccoa Falls: Located in Toccoa Falls, GA, it's biggest claims to fame are having the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi (yes, it's taller than Niagra Falls by 26ft) and to be in the movie Heritage Falls. While it's not free to visit the Falls, it does offer free parking and admission is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for kids 6-12, kids under 6 are free. 

  • Rock City Gardens: Located at the top of Lookout Mountain, you'll be able to see 7 state's views from the top of Lover's Leap! You'll be able to see waterfalls, huge rock formations, gorgeous fall foliage, beautiful gardens and so much more. 

  • Beasley Knob OHV Trail: If you're an off-road enthusiast then this is something that you'll want to try. This trail, located in Union County, Georgia in the Chattahoochee National Forest, is not for the faint of heart. This is for experienced off-roaders only and is 10.6 miles of heart-racing trails, rock-hills, and gravel roads. 

Planning ahead can be key to making sure that your trips go off without a hitch. Before heading out, check all your fluids and tires to make sure that your vehicle can handle the terrain of your adventure. Check out your locations before heading out and make sure that you'll have plenty of gas station and rest area options on your route. Many mountainous areas, to preserve the natural beauty of the land, have gas and rest areas spaced out. This means that you might go several miles before finding the nearest gas station. Make sure that you have plenty of gas and top off when you have the chance. 

Be sure to pack an emergency kit to keep in the car. The mountains can be very unpredictable and if you get caught in a storm and have to pull off the road, it's best to be prepared. Have flashlights, a portable phone charger, portable car battery charger, blankets, water, snacks, toilet paper, flares, and anything else you might think you'd want if you had to spend the night in your vehicle. 

If you do travel in a Jeep, and take the doors and top off, make sure to pack a tarp or bikini top to cover it in case of bad weather. There's nothing worse than getting caught in a storm with the top off! The weather can change on a dime, so always be weather aware when you travel. But most importantly, have fun, stay safe and enjoy the open road!
