The Blue Wall Passage crosses pristine natural areas managed by The Nature Conservancy and home to more than 100 species of birds. Wildlife, scenery, and a 30-foot cascading waterfall on a side loop offer fantastic photo ops for nature lovers. The eastern trailhead is located in the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE), an education/recreation center with easy paths, a pond, and an observation boardwalk. Country roads and sidewalks take the Trail user through downtown Landrum and around lovely Lake Lanier. The Southern Blue Ridge Escarpment at miles 12 to 14 climbs steeply and abruptly to Vaughns Gap (trailhead for Poinsett Reservoir Passage). Landrum offers quaint antique shops, great eateries, and comfy B&Bs.
