Found this to help.... DIRECTIONS From the intersection of Hwy 515 and Hwy 5 (McDonalds) in Blue Ridge, follow Hwy 515 East approximately 4 miles to the traffic light at Hwy 60. Turn right and go to the stop sign; then turn left on Hwy 60. Go 1.5 miles into Morganton, then turn right on Hwy 60 South toward Dahlonega for 11.3 miles passing Skeenah Mill. Another .7 miles on the right is FS 816, turn right there and follow ROUGH gravel road about 3 miles to the parking area. Short hike down to the Toccoa River & Swinging Bridge. Feb 5, 2018

Put these GPS coordinates in google maps 34.76599, -84.16423 from your location. Once there, you can do one of two things. Hike in on the BMT for a couple of miles or if the Forest Service gate is open and you have a higher clearance vehicle you can drive to within a quarter mile. I hiked in there a last year and it was about 4 miles roundtrip from Hwy GA 60. If you are hiking, there is parking on the opposite side of the road from the trail. Feb 5, 2018
