High above the township community of Suches, in upper southwestern corner of Union County along GA/60 is Woody Gap, named after Ranger Woody who served the National Forest Service in this region from 1911 to 1945.

The gap lies within a beautiful setting along the ancient Blue Ridge Mountain Range overlooking North Georgia’s Yahoola Valley, the Dahlonega Gold Belt, as well as the foothills and vast piedmont below. There’s a beautiful little picnic table setting at the vast overlook view, and a kiosk next to the trail.
