Located just 30 miles northeast of Atlanta, Woodstock is a perfect day trip to escape the city. While you’re there, you can take a ride down one of the city’s popular mountain biking trails, grab a locally-brewed beer and reconnect with nature all within the city’s 12 square miles. Below are five stops to consider as you make your way through Woodstock:
Within the walls of the century-old Dean’s Store you’ll find what has become a visitors center, a museum, a library, an art gallery, a concert hall, a literary lounge, and a local gathering place. Deans store is located in the heart of Woodstock and is the perfect stop for travelers, genealogical enthusiasts, history buffs and anyone else just passing through.
Olde Rope Mill Park is located just north of the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta in Woodstock. The Park features multiple mountain bike and multi-use trails, fishing and canoeing, park benches, picnic areas, decks and swings overlooking Little River, and a rock pavilion.
This trail system has become a destination for mountain bikers from around the United States. The Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) Woodstock Chapter was formed in March 2000 by a group of local mountain bikers. The all-volunteer group’s focus has been advocacy, mountain bike trail development, and trail maintenance in Cherokee County.

Every fall, this Woodstock destination offers a pumpkin patch, hayrides, bounce house, face painting, farm animals and more! Big Springs Farms has fresh gourds, Indian corn, dried gourds, corn stalks, birdhouses, concrete pumpkins and other fun harvest decorations for purchase.
