  • Excellent experience for the family.... if lucky children will be amazed while clouds rush by them at top of mountain...” my daughter got to eat clouds!”😂... great visitor’s center and museum at top.

It is worth the visit to be at the highest elevation in Georgia! Bring a camera and take some spectacular pictures! The best time to visit is right when the leaves turn in fall. Don’t miss out on one of the greatest views in our day! Lord bless!!
