Dawsonville is situated in the beautiful rolling piedmont just south of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Just fifteen miles north of the town lies one of the seven natural wonders of Georgia, Amicalola Falls. In Cherokee, Amicalola means "tumbling waters." At 729-feet tall, Amicalola is the highest falls in the state and the crown jewel of Amicalola Falls State Park.

It's easy to get to Dawsonville from State Routes 9, 53, and 136, which is why this area (specifically, Springer Mountain) was chosen as the start of the Appalachian Trail. In the 1950s, the trailblazers wanted to make sure that hikers could easily access it from major routes. Their vision proved to be correct. Many hikers come to Dawsonville before tackling the 8-mile hiking trail that passes Amicalola Falls and proceeds on to Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.

Hike to the top for a beautiful, lush valley view, or cross the footbridge for amazing close-up views of the main and lower cascades. Pause at the Reflecting Pool for the best panoramic view of the falls. After a long day's hike, you'll no doubt want more than a granola bar. Thankfully, Amicalola State Park has a restaurant ready to feed hungry hikers emerging from or just setting out on the Appalachian Trail.

Dawsonville is also known as the birthplace of NASCAR and the moonshine capital of America. You can taste the “white lightning” for yourself at a local distillery, watch a road race at the Atlanta Motorsports Park, and learn all about Dawsonville's Prohibition-era notoriety when you visit Dawsonville. From the past to the present, Dawsonville is a fascinating, under-the-radar Southern town just waiting to be discovered.

Learn About Dawsonville, GA's Moonshine and Motorsports Connections

Dawsonville is well-known as the birthplace of NASCAR, but not everyone knows how and why these Georgia drivers got to be so fast. The Mountain Moonshine Festival commemorates that pivotal role during the Prohibition era and the Great Depression, when running illegal alcohol through the foothills was the only way to scrape out a living. Booze was illegal during this time, but mountain men and women had been making “white lightning” long before alcohol was outlawed. So, they began making the illicit “moonshine” at night (under the light of the moon) to evade detection because of their smoky stills.

Each distiller needed a runner with a normal-looking “stock” car, souped-up under the hood with enough speed and power to outrun the law. They also knew the winding mountain back roads better than anyone and could usually evade pursuit with wild maneuvers like the “bootleg” skid.

Despite their skills, some still careened off the road, just as drivers sometimes do in NASCAR races today. If you hike the main trail in Amicalola Falls, look out down the slope to see a wrecked stock truck from the 1940s hidden in the brush. They say it was discovered in the 1970s with mason jars full of “shine” still intact inside. After Prohibition was lifted, bored drivers began racing each other instead, and NASCAR was born.

Visit the Mountain Moonshine Festival in October, and you can meet your favorite NASCAR drivers, the heirs of those early runners. Festival-goers can also listen to riveting storytelling about outlaw "trippers" and their nemeses, the federal revenue agents, and see one of the best collections of historic early stock cars. You can even watch a thrilling re-enactment of a moonshine run.

If you want to taste local moonshine for yourself, head over to Dawsonville Distillery, a small-batch distillery and home to NASCAR driver Bill Elliot's own moonshine. This “white lightning” still makes each batch with family recipes that have been handed down for generations. You can't buy a bottle here, but you can taste it and pick one up at a local Dawsonville store.

Motorsports also remain very important to this community. The Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville features two Formula One designed circuits, and the road course has been voted as one of the top tracks in North America.

From stunning waterfalls to challenging hikes, tasty food trucks to small batch moonshine and motorsports, Dawsonville, Georgia, will delight you at every turn.
