Beautiful Brasstown Bald, rising 4,784 feet above sea level, is Georgia’s highest mountain. Hike a steep half mile from the parking lot to the top of the mountain, where there’s an observation deck and visitors center. 360-degree view from atop the mountain allows you to see four states, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Brasstown Bald was so named because of confusion between the Cherokee words itse-yi, meaning “new green place,” and untsaiyi, meaning “brass”. It is located in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, and it is a great place to visit and bring family.
