We have a 31' Class C motorhome with a car dolly and are looking for suggestions for the best route into Hiawassee that won't be too challenging/stressful of a drive. We're concerned about choosing a route through the mountains that won't have hairpin turns or really steep grades.

I75 is fastest and doesn’t violate federal highway standards on curves and climbs but you do go through Atlanta. There are more scenic routes which I favor.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watts solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL pole for flags. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, USF&WS, state & county camps. Bicyclist! 14 year Army vet - 11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560)

Your flattest straightest route is I-575/GA-515 out of Marietta, GA. IF you want to stay east of Atlanta, US-441 to Clayton, then US-76 west to Hiawassee. Do not take US-19/129.

I drive to Jacksonville from Blairsville every month. The routes described I-75- I-575-515 is the flattest and fastest route. My bride hates Atlanta traffic so I go a slower, longer less stressful route, I-96/I-16, US441 to Clayton then over the mountain on US76 through Hiawassee to Blairsville.

Google "directions from Jacksonville FL to Hiawassee GA" -- check the 'avoid highways' box -- and it will give you 3 good routes, all about the same amount of travel time. Have fun!
