This forest is just so beautiful with its many waterfalls and beautiful mountain views. There are also many wonderful hiking trails where you can enjoy the peaceful scenery.

We hiked up Brasstown Bald to their wonderful visitors' center. "Bald" refers to the treeless area at the top of the mountain, the highest natural point in Georgia. On the recommendation of the shuttle driver we hiked up and rode the shuttle down, since the wooded path is fairly step. Views of 3-4 states from one spot, good dioramas on... More

I just returned from a week in the mountains. It was beautiful, you will never go wrong visiting this area in the fall. It's a great place to visit anytime of the year.

We hired Don, the son in law of Dianne Quigley, owner of Long Mountain B&B to take a group of us to the forest to see some of the waterfalls. It had rained but the forest gleamed with its beauty. The waterfalls were breath taking and we loved our memorable time there.

I live here. Find nature by traveling the forest service roads. Plenty of hiking to do and wildlife to see. The Appalachian Trail cuts one of the many paths through this wilderness.

The National Forest is massive with numerous trails and tracks. We were looking for forest trails for our Jeep, and had no problem finding fun romps. A short hike on a well maintained trail took us to a spectacular waterfall. Looks like a great place to camp and fish.

The fall views, especially, as we ride through the area in the higher elevations are wonderful, although maybe no as significant as the Pisgah Forest not too far away. This one is quite close to us, and we enjoy the opportunities. Good hiking trails available.

Peace and the great outdoors. I live up here - you can only visit. Whatever you do in the woods - somone up here will make it fun to do in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Bring you camera 'cause we still have animals, scenery, waterfalls and everything. Plus it's about 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta most of the time.
