As you travel from Dawsonville, GA west on Hwy 53, the highway is primarily squeezed by a densely wooded stretch until you reach the intersection at Cowart Road. From here to the Pickens County line, the countryside opens up briefly into an area of cleared agricultural spaces. This stretch only lasts a bit over a mile before the blacktop disappears again, curving into the woods of eastern Pickens County.

Hardscrabble farmsteads, stills, and probably a few gold panners were all commonplace in the distant past of this quiet north Georgia location.
