Gold Ridge is an unincorporated community in Cherokee County, Georgia, United States.

The area was settled in the mid 19th century and is located between Canton and the Sixes community, which is home to the now-defunct Sixes Gold Mine.[1] Gold Ridge 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]

Gold Ridge is defined by Georgia State Route 20 (Knox Bridge Highway) to the north, Marietta Highway (former Georgia State Route 5) to the east, the Sixes community to the south and the Etowah River / Lake Allatoona to the west. Bells Ferry Road (former Georgia State Route 205), Ridge Road and Butterworth Road run through the heart of the area, which is becoming more residential with many upscale neighborhoods.
