State Route 75 (SR 75) is a 33.4-mile-long (53.8 km) state highway that runs south-to-north through portions of White and Towns counties in the northern part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It connects the towns of Cleveland and Hiawassee, with Helen, Macedonia and the North Carolina state line.
SR 75 begins at an intersection with US 129/SR 11 (North Main Street) in Cleveland in White County. This intersection also marks the southern terminus of SR 75 Alternate, which runs concurrent with US 129/SR 11 to the northwest. SR 75 heads north-northeast, past White County Park, to an intersection with the northern terminus of SR 384. About 1.2 miles (1.9 km) later, the road crosses over the Chattahoochee River. Then, SR 17 (Unicoi Turnpike) begins a concurrency with it to the northwest. Immediately after is another crossing of the Chattahoochee River. In Helen, a Germany-themed town, they cross over the river again. They begin to parallel the river to the northwest. Just outside of town, they meet the northern terminus of SR 75 Alternate and enter the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. They head north and north-northeast on a curving fashion through the North Georgia mountains and cross into Towns County. They meet the eastern terminus of SR 180 and parallel the Hiawassee River for a while, before crossing over the river and heading to the north-northwest. They begin a concurrency with US 76/SR 2, just to the west of Macedonia. The four highways meet the eastern terminus of SR 288 and cross over a portion of Chatuge Lake. Then, they head northwest to the town of Hiawassee. In the northern part of town, SR 75 splits off to the northeast. It curves to the northwest, and circles back to the northwest, before leaving the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, heads west, and curves to the north. It heads due north before a gradual curve to the north-northeast, just before meeting its northern terminus, the North Carolina state line. Here, the roadway continues as North Carolina Highway 175.
