You’ll See 4 States At The Same Time At The Top Of Georgia's Tallest Mountain

Ever dream about being able to touch the clouds or even see them up close? You would think you would have to go way up north to be eye level with the clouds, but you are wrong. North Georgia is home to the tallest mountain in Georgia and you can see way more than just clouds. 

Brasstown Bald stands at a tall 4,784 feet above sea-level. Just for comparison purposes, the Empire State Building is only 1,454 feet tall...yeah this mountain is that massive. 

Visitors can go to the top and look out to see some pretty scenic views that look like they are too good to be true. Also, we are not lying, you really are in the clouds at the top.

The view at the top is a 360-degree view, so you can see everything that surrounds this landmark, including a few states.

Yes, you are in Georgia, but you can see North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia (obviously), and Tennessee. 

When you park in the parking lot provided at the mountain, you have two options. You can either take the shuttle to the top of the mountain, or you can hike. 

The hike is only half of a mile if you are up for a constant inclined walk. There are a few other more intense trails, which you can find here

After your adventure to the top, you can go spend time at the visitor center and learn all about Brasstown Bald to watch a short film about how each season affects this area. 

There is a $5 admission fee to visit the mountain, and it includes your shuttle ride if you choose to take it.

One unique feature that this location offers is the Gazers of the Galaxy event.

During two nights this summer, you will be able to observe the stars from a whole new view than just in your backyard. You will have an astronomer with you to show you all the stars and tell you the information about them.

It is $20 for this experience and you can purchase tickets here. You can only partake in this June 7 and June 8, so hurry and get your tickets!

Brasstown Bald is located at 2941 GA-180 Spur, Hiawassee, GA 30546 and is open from 9:00 a.m to 8:30 p.m. 

We strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures. If you do plan to visit a location, respect the environment.
