We drove up to Brasstown Bald on a sunny Saturday with temps in the 50s. It is a STEEP climb to the top but there are many places to stop and take a break. I'm not sure I would want to do it in the middle of summer but my neighbor who works up there says it's always cool. The... More

I've seen now a few meteor showers Brasstown Bald...absolutely amazing place to be for stars. The shop on top is nice, but the walk up is pretty steep...needed the exercise anyway.

I've visited several times in all seasons and have enjoyed every season. In winter I do recommend checking ahead with the U.S. Forest Service to see if the road to the top is open. It snows here more than you might think. If there is icing on the road then they will be closed and you might not want to... More

For a small fee, yoo can enjoy a nature walk, picnic, or hike/ride to the top of Georgia. See several states if weather is clear. Beautiful place to SEE!!

Walked steep path up for 6/10ths of a mile. Watched the informative short film. Walked the perimeter. On this partly sunny day, while our view was obscured by clouds, the view was still indescribably beautiful and it was fascinating to look down upon the moving clouds.

This is a definitely a waypoint if you are staying or traveling in the area. Nice facility. It is primarily a fire lookout tower with a nice observation deck for the public. There is a short informative video show also. Don't be a wuss, take the trail up. :)

A must if you are in the area! Pay $5 a person to enter and you can trek up to the observation deck or take the shuttle up. The hike up is not for the faint of heart. It's like walking up a 42 story building. I recommend the shuttle up and then hike back down. The view is absolutely... More

Considering this was a great trip in the winter, I am really excited to experience the drive, hike, and view in the spring and fall! The "hike" is steep but at .6 miles I wouldn't really call it a hike. It did get our heart rates up but just not for a long period of time. :) The walk up... More

Took the family to check out the tallest point in Georgia. The cost is $5 per adult...A National Park Senior Pass will get you in free if you want to hike the half-mile to the peak, or the pass will reduce the cost to $3 so you can take the shuttle to the top. There is plenty of parking. The... More

The drive up wasn't bad at all. The view was incredible and enjoyable despite the cold wind (we were there in late November). Definitely worth visiting.
