How to get to Pickens
If you will be using a GPS system to locate our town, please make sure not to use the route through Holly River State Park unless you are wanting to take a scenic route on a narrow dirt road. It's a very beautiful drive especially in the fall, but if you are wanting paved roads and the quickest route it is not the better choice. The best traveling roads are the ones in the directions below.
