The Natural Wanderer: Outdoor Activities for Blue Ridge, GA

Trip Itineraries

Coming to the Blue Ridge Mountains for some fresh air and new sights? We've got the perfect itenerary laid out for a full day of outdoor adventure and activities right here in Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Let's kickstart this weekend of the Great Outdoors with one of our lovely Toccoa Heights cabins, The Rivers Edge.

This cabin has direct access to the Toccoa River, providing tons of things to do for the adventurists' heart; activities ranging from tubing - be it launching down river or tying off at the bank, fishing - privately with our treasured Joe DiPietro or from the edge, and plenty of room for running or playing. This home is pet friendly, having an open area for dogs to run and explore. Situated on a hillside featuring panoramic Toccoa River views and the Indigenous Cherokee Fish Weir, the promise of a true river escape awaits. If privacy and solitude are needed for unplugging from the city life, the large expanse of the three floors will enable you to get away from the action in order to relax your mind.

Let the Activities begin!
