There are way to many incredibly beautiful spots in the Chattahoochee National Forest to start to list them here. However this is one of the most beautiful and magical places in Georgia and in the Southern Appalachians. There is a lot to do and see here and there's not a lot of wrong ways to go about exploring the area,... More

Great views and beautiful wilderness. It is truly like an escape back in time. We spent several hours on the nature trails and enjoyed every minute of it.

No dislkes. How could one possibly dislike a forest? I have been to many forests all across the U.S. It is always a moving, awesome experience.

Loved the views and we took the 2 mile trail and it was awesome. The wild flowers were just coming out and the weather is cool in May. This county has more rain than most counties in the Nation. Take rain gear in the Spring.

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.
