Beautiful Area of Georgia

This part of Georgia is beautiful. You can camp and ind many other things to do. Although you will have to drive to find those things, but you can still see beautiful scenery.

A beautiful forest with waterfalls, black bears, trails, snakes, proximity to the Appalachian Trail, fireflies and mountains. Take precautions with your food because there are bears. It does get cool at night even in the hot humid summers! It rains very very hard and crazy a lot of summer nights. It is beautiful when it does!

What a beautiful place to visit. There are waterfalls and hiking trails all over the park. My wife and I had a wonderful time. The forest was just starting to turn colors. We stayed in Clayton, GA which was a very nice, quaint little town with nice shops and tasty restaurants.

We have spent the memorial weekend in here. It was so wonderful. We stayed in Clayton. We have visited Anna ruby falls, Brasstown bald in Russel brasstown scenic byway and Tallulah falls. Everything was amazing. Anna ruby falls was very nice but a little crowded. The mountain views from Brasstown bald was gorgeous and it was totally worth the hike... More

We spent a weekend in a rented cabin in the Forest and had a wonderful time. White water rafting, hiking, nice mountain towns, Foxfire Museum. Lots to do and see and we will return.

Took GA 75 north past Helen, GA in to the Chattahoochee National Forest primitive campground. (You know you're getting close when you pass Andrews Cove Campground). It was amazing; camped for free right by a waterfall. Only downside was having to drive five mountain road miles on a gravel trail; totally worth it. Highly recommend for families or lovers!

There are two famous hiking trails located in the Blue Ridge, The Bertram Trail and Rabun Bald trail. The Bertram was named after the famous Botanist Dr Bertram in the late 1700s. The trail runs from up around... More

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
