Raccoon Ridge is centrally, if not 'perfectly' located. The Toccoa River flows past the bottom of the Ridge. Sandy Bottom adventure center area (kayak, canoes and tubing) is a mile east on Aska Road. You can rent, or, as we do, put air in the tubes, load up the truck, drop folks off upsteam at the National Forest canoe launch and pick them up an hour and one-half later at Shallowford Bridge. For the really good fishing, we drive east to the far end of the County to Cooper's Creek, also part of the National Forest. Two miles to the west are the Aska National Forest Hiking / Mountain Biking trails. There is a marked trail leading to this area through back country from Raccoon Ridge. Head east to the end of Aska road, turn right and you come to Noontoola Creek Farm which has one of the finest sport clay shooting facilites you'll find. Thirty minutes northeast we can enjoy whitewater rafting on the Ocoee river. Two hours north is Clingman's dome (the second highest peak in the Blue Ridge Moutnains). We enjoy playing golf at the local public courses, spending an afternoon in Blue Ridge and just 'chillin' on the deck surveying the valley.
