Directions to Helen
About North Georgia

Helen, in the North Georgia Mountains is an easy drive from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Athens, or South Carolina.

From Atlanta: The quickest way to Helen may not be the shortest, but it is the most scenic. Take I-75 north to I-575. At the Cherokee-Pickens County line, I-575 becomes the Georgia Mountain Parkway. This wonderful 80-mile route takes visitors through other small towns on the way to Helen. At the intersection of GA 75 South turn right and follow the road over Unicoi Gap. Helen is 12 miles from this point.

Alternate route: In Blairsville (one of the small towns on the Georgia Mountain Parkway) turn right on Highway 129. Take this south to GA 180 (to Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest point). GA 348, also known as the Richard B. Russell Scenic Highway comes off to the right. Take this to Alt. 75 and turn left (sorry, no light at this sometimes busy intersection). Turn right on Highway 75.
