The family had never visited Brasstown Bald before, so on this really cold and windy but clear day, we decided to brave it. We're glad we did. The views were Amazing. There were no bathrooms available, since they shut off the water due to the freezing tempatures, however we didn't have to pay the $3 per person either. No employees... More

About two hours from midtown Atlanta in the NE part of the state, you can have postcard level views of the national forests in three states. Even the tall buildings in downtown Atlanta can be seen in a clear day. Beautifully maintained by the Park Service, you can hike to the top of the mountain on a manicured trail or... More

Excellent displays, a little history, and a fantastic view. Take a picnic and enjoy the outdoors. Walk or ride up the nature trail.

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. :)
