Gold Ridge is an unincorporated community in Cherokee County, Georgia, United States. It was settled in the middle 19th century and is located between Canton and the Sixes community, which is home to the now-defunct Sixes Gold Mine.[1] The area is located in the Georgia Gold Belt, which runs southwest to northeast along the southern edge of the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains.[1] The Gold Ridge area is becoming more residential with many upscale neighborhoods. The area is traversed by state route 20 (Knox Bridge Highway), Bells Ferry Road (former Georgia 205) and Butterworth Road. Gold Ridge is bordered to the north and west by the Etowah River.
