There are a lot of places in Georgia which are fan favorites for most—big, beautiful spots like Savannah, which is just bursting with history and charm. Many people who visit Georgia, tend to stay to the more popular places in order to experience what they think it’s all about. However, there are a few places in Georgia that aren’t too traveled, but definitely deserve to be on your radar. Here are a few of those spots…
1. St. Catherine's Island, Georgia
If you aren't familiar, St. Catherine's Island is a privately owned island, very much undisturbed by human beings. How can you visit this historically coastal island? Either by personal invitations, or by a special boat trip to the beach only.
2. The Gorge Floor Cave, Tallulah Gorge
Here's the thing about the Gorge Floor Cave...the cave entrance is hidden, which makes it one of the least-traveled places in the state. Rangers will need to personally take you into the gorge, across a few rivers, and up a bout of very steep banks.
3. The James Edmund Trail, Black Rock Mountain State Park
Many people claim the James Edmund Trail in Black Rock Mountain State Park is the most difficult trail in the state. There is such a steady decline deep into the woods, and this is at the highest elevation state park in Northern Georgia. Of course there wouldn't be too many people hiking this trail!
4. Abandoned Marble Mine, James H. Floyd State Park
The Marble Mine Trail is an easy 1.7-mile hike that leads to an incredible abandoned mine, an aboveground cave, and a neat, natural waterfall all in one. Many people don't know about this little Georgia gem.
5. Corpsewood Manor, Chattahoochee National Forest
Many moons ago, there was a grisly double murder deep in the heart of the Chattahoochee National Forest. While there is a general idea of how to get to the manor because the ruins don't have a public address, many people have tried to no success, which makes it one of the least traveled places in Georgia.
6. Ellison's Cave, Walker County
There's a reason why Ellison's Cave is one of the least traveled places in the state: it's the 12th deepest cave in the United States. Not many people are trained to travel those depths, which makes it uncharted territory for most.
7. Edge Hill, Georgia
Edge Hill, Georgia is truly one of the least traveled places in the state, simply because it is the smallest incorporated city in Georgia by population. In 2010, the population was at 24 people. How's that for solitude?
8. World of Coca-Cola Vault, Atlanta
Okay, we had to add this one in, simply because it truly is one of the least traveled spots in the state. The vault is never opened to the public, and actually requires a handprint scan, and keypad to get in. It's so top secret, it's worth the chance to see it up close.
