Blairsville, Georgia - Brasstown Bald

  Brasstown Bald is Georgia’s highest peak at 4,784 feet, with panoramic views, hiking trails and wildflowers galore.

The pristine wilderness from which Brasstown Bald rises is in and of itself unique. Below the peak to the north and east is a "cloud forest," the only one in Georgia. This environmentally sensitive slope features lichen covered yellow birch and spectacular wildflower displays. The area is usually dripping wet from the moisture in the clouds that give this forest its name. A boulderfield typical of a cloud forest is nearby, but be cautious--the rocks are slippery. Here in the shadow of Brasstown Bald is the southernmost habitat of many northern species and home to many animals that populate the forests of Georgia including the brown bear. Off hour visitors often report bear sightings in the park itself. Throughout the area varieties of oak dominate with willow, ash and occasionally beech and sugar maple. This natural mix makes for an truly marvelous fall view.

Blue Ridge, Georgia - Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

 Scenic Railway Blue Ridge Georgia

  Our regular 4 hour, 26 mile round trip winds along the beautiful Toccoa River for 1 hour in vintage climate-controlled or open-air rail cars.

The relaxing ride starts at the historic depot, built in 1905 in downtown Blue Ridge, then stops for a layover in the quaint sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.

Copperhill/McCaysville is one town with two names because it is split by the GA/TN State Line. Here visitors have a 2 hour layover; plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, visit the model railroad layout, or walk across the old bridge in town to view the river. Then, reboard the train for the one hour return trip.

At the end of the trip, our engineers have been hosting tours of the engine as long as the weather is nice enough. The steps are tall, but children of all ages manage to climb up for a look.

If you're into the great outdoors, you've come to the right place. The Chattahoochee National Forest is a great place to have fun and adventure doing the things you love to do such as: hunting and fishing; hiking, biking, and horseback riding; swimming, canoeing, and kayaking; nature study, photography, and viewing great scenery.

Georgia's national forests are said to be a hiker's paradise. Winding trails lead visitors through scenic mountains and rolling hills, by wild rushing rivers and cascading waterfalls. They also lead visitors through the history books: Spanish conquistador Hernando de Soto's futile search for gold, the United States' first frenzied gold rush. The Cherokee Indians' struggle to hold on to heir lands, and major battles of the Civil War.

Ten wildernesses, 1,367 miles of trout streams, and 430 miles of trails enrich the Chattahoochee National Forest. The famous 2,135-mile Appalachian Trail begins here and hardy hikers don't see the end until they reach Maine!

Spectacular Anna Ruby Falls lies in the heart of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The quiet coolness of the area is broken only by the thundering rush of water flowing over the rugged cliff face. Anna Ruby Falls marks the junction of Curtis and York Creeks. Both creeks begin on Tray Mountain and are fed by underground springs, rain, and snow. Curtis Creek drops 153 feet and York Creek 50 feet to form the twin waterfalls known as Anna Ruby Falls. From the falls, Smith Creek tumbles downhill to Unicoi Lake and then to the Chattahoochee River. It's journey continues south, eventually joining the Applachicola River in Florida and ending its 550-mile journey in the Gulf of Mexico. A paved 0.4-mile footpath leads from the parking lot to the base of the falls. Walking is easy to moderate and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Benches are provided along the way. Walking shoes are recommended since the trail can be wet and slippery.
