A part of the famous Blue Ridge range of the Appalachian Mountains, claims the title of the tallest natural feature in Georgia. Rising to a height of 643 m (2,108 ft) and carpeted by dense forest, the mountain offers views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. Stop by the visitor center, accessible either by shuttle from the parking area or via a steep, 1 km (0.6 mi) long trail, to view exhibits on local history, flora, and fauna. On a clear day, you may be able to see the skyscrapers of Atlanta in the distance.
