Blairsville is where I based in October last year and March of this year.  A
couple of reasonable motels in town, lots of food options and a pretty easy
drive up to the trailhead.

Outside the park you either turn left and go 20 miles to Dahlonega (sp) or
right and go 20 miles to Blairsville.  Only thing on the road to Blairsville
I remember is the convenience store where Red got us lost heading to the
trailhead.  <VBG>  Haven't been south on the road so I can't tell you what's
that way.
