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. 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. The Gold Ridge area is becoming more residential, and now makes-up part of southwestern suburban Canton. The area is traversed by state route 20 (Knox Bridge Highway) and Bells Ferry Road (former Georgia 205) and is bordered to the north and west by the Etowah River.
