Its really hard to pick a bad direction from Elijay. That happens to be one my favorite areas to get lost in.

Back in 2004 I stopped into a motorcycle shop on the North side ofRobinsville NC. While there I purchased a motorcycle map. It was about 24" X 30" unfolded. On one side it had Western NC and on the other it had North Ga.
It showed lots of great roads in these areas and even noted if they were pavement, gravel or dirt.
I would assume that a dealership in the Ellijay area might carry those maps still today. The map was white with green lettering.
It was kinda "hand drawn-ish" but contained very good information.


Here are some other options on maps
1. DeLormes. You should be able to pick one of these up at a Walmart

2. http://www.info-map.com/cycle

3. http://www.n-georgia.com/orv_trails.htm 

4. http://ngeorgia.com/ang/North_Georgia_Covered_Bridge_Maps Covered bridge map

I had to wait until I got home to get this, as it's on my laptop....

This is the Vehicle Use Map for the Chattahoochee-Oconnee NF. This is an official USFS document list the roads and trails open to vehicular use in the Hooch.

Utilize a north georgia map to get your bearings and then use this to hone in on where you wish to go...

Click the attachment below. It's a large file, print it out and start taping and you'll have the most accurate and largest map around!

Here is a route i have done a couples times.   Enter Amicola Falls State Park. Tell the ranger you are just passing through][ no fee required] and have him tell you how to get to the dirt road out the back side of the park. once you have cleared the park the dirt road splits. if you go left it will take you to an old church and eventually bring you out to ellijay, go right and trail ride for miles.  I would get a map of the area  there is more to those roads than we have had time to discover,   well worth it!
 
Another one----have someone direct you to Cashes Valley Creek Road. 5 creek crossings unreal scenery.
