SR 66 originally existed in two sections north and south of the state's highest peak, Brasstown Bald. The southern route provided access to the top of the mountain, while the northern portion was only accessible by a long-closed wagon road built in the 1950s. A projected highway was planned to replace the wagon road, but the project was canceled in 1982 when the area around it was designated a wilderness area. When the southern completion of SR 66 was canceled, SR 180 was extended along the connecting part and the remainder became SR 180 Spur. The former wagon road is still in use as Wagon Train Trail.
The entire route is in Towns County.
