Northeast Georgia Links
Students at Piedmont College are fortunate to live in one of the finest outdoor recreation areas in the U.S. You can enjoy hiking and camping in several nearby state and federal parks, or really get away from it all on the nearby Appalachian Trail and the Chattahoochee National Forest.
Northeast Georgia has a long tradition of preserving its Appalachian roots. Each year, towns and communities in the area host festivals featuring mountain music, arts, crafts and food.
Demorest is also just 25 minutes from Gainesville, Ga.; 45 minutes from Athens, Ga.; and just 70 minutes from Atlanta, Ga., and Greenville, S.C.
