Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests
Beautiful Brasstown Bald, rising 4,784 feet above sea level, is Georgia's highest mountain. On clear days, the spectacular 360-degree view from atop the mountain allows you to see four states, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The surrounding area is home to a wide variety of plants and animals.
The Visitor Information Center, located on the summit of the Bald, offers exhibits, video presentations and interpretive programs. A steep, paved 1/2 mile trail leads from the parking lot to the Visitor Information Center on the Bald. For those who don't want to walk, a concessionaire operates a shuttle buss from the parking area to the Visitor Information Center for a fee.
Brasstown Bald is open daily from Memorial Day through October and on weekends in the early spring and late fall (depending on the weather). Brasstown Bald offers the following:
From Blairsville, Georgia take US 19 & 129 south for 8 miles. Turn left (east) onto Georgia 180. Go 9 miles to Georgia Spur 180 and turn left (north). Go 3 miles to the Brasstown Bald parking lot.
