Directions from Atlanta:
  • Take 75N to Exit 306 Adairsville/Summerville. At top of exit, left onto GA 140W.
  • Approximately 15 miles, GA 140W ends; take a right onto GA 27N, follow to Summerville.
  • In Summerville, go through traffic light, get in left lane and turn onto GA 48W toward Menlo.
  • Follow GA 48W through Menlo to Alabama state line; GA 48W becomes AL 117N.
  • Follow AL 117N through Mentone, down mountain, through Valley Head to Hammondville.

  • Go through traffic light in Henagar. Go 1.2 miles and make a right onto County 88 (just before Henagar Baptist Church. County 88 drops off and is difficult to see. If you pass Henagar Baptist Church, you've missed your road.)
