Það sem verður gert

We'll meet beside the Blue Ridge train station tracks on West Main Street, Blue Ridge, GA, roughly in front of the Southern Charm Restaurant. If there are no parking places available the second option is around the corner behind TruFitness. From there, I will drive you to the destination, which is Bell Mountain, Hiawassee, GA. Not many locals have ever been, much less tourists, so this is a beautiful, secret lookout over Lake Chatuge and Hiawassee, and its charm is in its obscurity. We will take about an hour drive time to arrive at our location and although the last of the drive is quite steep and curvy, it is paved the entire trip. We'll park at the top of the mountian, so hiking will not be required, although to reach the higher, lookout-deck spots, wooden stairs with handrails are required to obtain these elevated points of interest, but not necessary. I would suggest a jacket due to the temperature change and wind which typically occurs when reaching higher altitudes. Bathrooms are not available once we arrive on Bell Mountain, so please plan accordingly. I will be providing water, but any other beverages will be the responsibility of the participant. After guests have had the opportunity to explore this spectacular outlook, we'll begin out journey back to the original meeting parking spot in Blue Ridge, GA.My goal is to provide a remarkable, unforgettable experience
Other things to note
Bring safe walking shoes for climbing stairs if you want to go to the upper outlook decks, hiking poles for stability on stairs (if needed), camera (if desired), comfortable clothes with layers available for temperature changes, wind-jacket, light backpack, additional drinks if desired (non-alcohol)

I moved to the mountains of Blue Ridge, GA 15 years ago. I've always been incredibly active in the outdoors, exploring all the local waterfalls, lakes, rivers, amazing forest trails and beautiful, bucolic drives. I personally have explored almost every waterfall and amazing overlooks in our area. The water in the rivers and lakes is a beautiful emerald-green, year-round, creating outstanding photos. My skill is to focus on short easy hikes, walks on paved trails or decking with steps for overlooks, natural foliage up close and personal, always in places difficult to find. I am expert in locations unknown even to local folk, such as Bell Mtn, and have enough photography knowledge to assist as well. Bell Mtn requires no hiking to reach stunning scenery from several overlook locations. I will exceed your expectations on this excursion!

Staðsetning

We'll be exploring Bell Mtn, Hiawassee, GA which has observation decks with incredible overlooks of both the mountains of Hiawassee and stunning views of Lake Chatuge. Most locals are not even aware of this special location and exploring this area can be extremely confusing for novices; even understanding where to park can be a challenge, not to mention the curvy, steep paved road to the top. It's my goal to relieve all concerns for my guests!

I don’t even know where to begin! Nancy was exceptionally sweet, and knowledgeable of everything!! I am extremely afraid of heights, this was an event my best friend booked for us on Christmas Day! Nancy was very caring and was checking on me the entire time. She was taking tons of pictures of us, and made sure we had a memorable experience! She was cautious driving up and down the mountain. While on bell mountain I was able to meet the mayor of towns county whom was extremely sweet! Towns county should be proud to have Nancy Informing visitors and Liz as Mayor!!

This was a wonderful experience. We initially had scheduled for Saturday but the weather was going to be bad. Nancy contacted me ahead of time to make sure I was aware of the weather. She offered multiple solutions around it and even offered to still take us in the rain if we wished. We rescheduled for the next day. Nancy was right on time to pick us up and she had signs on her car to make her stand out as well. Nancy greeted us and we got started. She pointed out different things along the ride to our destination. I am so glad she was driving because I wouldn’t have been comfortable on the last road. It was steep and a one lane road. We were able to see all the sights and she told us what different landmarks were. She is a good driver, which was very nice but she took it at a wonderful pace so we could enjoy the sights. I had my kids with us and she even offered water and bathroom breaks. Once we arrived at the top of the mountain she pointed out a parking spot where she had parked on her first trip before hiking the rest of the way up and realizing her mistake. I was so happy she knew that because it was quite the hike! She knew all about the graffiti and even how it began and how it is evolving. She told us how the man who owned the property donated it to Towns county when he passed. There’s a neat story of the Jeep riders as well but you’ll have to go on the trip to find out. There were stairs to climb to the top and a mountain to climb up. So much to see! While we were there, Nancy took pictures of my kids and me. She did candid shots as well as had us pose. That was great because I got to enjoy the moments while someone else captured them! I HIGHLY recommend this trip with Nancy and can’t wait to see some of her future trips. She is an amazing woman with lots of great fun adventures ahead.

Despite living in Blue Ridge I have never visited Bell Mountain. The road is tricky and I don't do steep dirt roads. Nancy knows how to get you there safely. The location is spectacular and perfect for photography. Nancy is an expect photographer and a good photography teacher. She is also friendly and helpful. I recommend this excursion to visitor and locals. As a visitor you will never find it on your own, and you also get a photography lesson and well as an excellent guide. Nancy's appreciation of nature is refreshing.

The Bell Mountain experience was a great excursion. Nancy was awesome - very personable and knowledgeable about the history of the place. My mother and I had a blast! Nancy went above and beyond to make sure our trip was unforgettable by showing us a beautiful Brasstown Resort in Young Harris and stopping by Sleepy Hollow Whimsical Fairy Garden. Also, she took some professional pictures that will be a great memory for the family. She recommended some places to eat as well. The Harvest on Main didn’t fail our expectations. The tour was a great experience and we would definitely do it again!

My husband and I did the Bell Mountain Experience and it was amazing! We met with our host Nancy in downtown Blue Ridge and headed out on a beautiful drive toward Bell Mountain. Nancy was extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and we saw some of the most beautiful scenery during our drive up. Once we arrived at Bell Mountain our jaws dropped, it was absolutely breathtaking! Pictures could never do this place justice, it's something you have to experience in person! The views of Lake Chatuge and the surrounding mountains were spectacular - the views seemed to go on for miles, and it was such a peaceful place. If you have a chance while visiting the beautiful Blue Ridge area, I highly recommend the Bell Mountain Experience with Nancy, it was so nice to sit back, relax and enjoy the drive while hearing about the history of the area! Thank you so much Nancy for being such an amazing host! We loved it and can't wait to try another one of your experiences soon!
