Black Rock Mountain State Park is a 1,743-acre (705 ha) Georgia, United States, state park west of Mountain City in Rabun County, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is named after its sheer cliffs of dark-colored biotite gneiss. Astride the Eastern Continental Divide at an elevation of 3,640 feet (1,110 m), the park provides many scenic overlooks and 80-mile (130 km) vistas of the southern Appalachian Mountains. On a clear day, four states are visible: Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. In addition to Black Rock Mountain itself, the park includes four other peaks over 3,000 feet (910 m) in elevation, making it the state's highest state park. As of 2019, it was open to visitors year round.

  • Decent hike around a mountain with good vistas at several points. The rangers were helpful in the visitors center.

  • Black Rock is a very nice campground right on the continental divide at the highest point in Northeast Georgia. The road to the park is winding and very steep but in good condition and easily...

  • Great park and easy to get to. Loved the view from the top and the gift shop. Pictures don't do it justice. Also, if you go, you need to find the lake and hike to the waterfall. It's definitely a challenging hike, but worth it. The road is gravel, but easily drivable. The park ranger that takes your entrance fee will give you directions if needed.
  • Beautiful state park with some good and very scenic hiking. Dog friendly. The Tennessee Rock trail was perfect for us. The trail features different scenery such as ferna in one area, lots of mountain Laurel in another and an amazing scenic vista in yet another. Highly recommend!
