Where to Explore in 2024? We got you! Next stop: The Six Gaps of North Georgia!
The entire figure 8 including the short 3 mile US 129 connector is 77 miles long. The southern loop is 35 miles and the northern loop is 38 miles. Each of the six segments includes crossing through a mountain “gap” or low pass, hence the name Six Gap. Four of these gaps are at points where the Appalachian Trail, stretching from Georgia to Maine, crosses the roadway. So you can understand how the mountain terrain makes for some good riding.
Stonepile Gap, at the intersection of US 19 and GA 60, is supposedly the resting place of Trahlyta of Cherokee legend. The historical marker at Stonepile reads, “custom arose among the Indians and later the whites to drop stones, one for each passerby, on her grave for good fortune.” Today there is a pile of stones some six feet high.
