When Fall makes its much-anticipated appearance in North Georgia, in-the-know leaf lookers head to one spot: Brasstown Bald near Blairsville. As the state’s highest peak — 4,784 feet above sea level — Brasstown Bald is also among the first to display the season’s riotous fall colors. Even in summer, you’ll find the mountain a worthy escape thanks to its picturesque location amid the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest and its refreshing temperatures. Pack your camera and wear your comfy shoes for the half-mile climb from the parking lot to the Brasstown Bald Visitors Center and Observation Deck, where you can soak in breathtaking, 360-degree views. On clear days, you’ll see four states, even without the help of the on-site telescopes. Not-so-sunny days also offer beautiful photo ops, allowing you to peer down upon cloud tops or photograph fog-filled valleys. Be warned, however, that the hike to the top is pretty steep, so take advantage of the shuttle service if necessary. Spend time in the visitors center to view exhibits on local culture, geology, wildlife and more. For more intense hikes, check out the three other trails accessible from the Bald, including Jacks Knob Foot Trail, which leads to the Appalachian Trail.
