At 4,784 feet Brasstown Bald is Georgia highest mountain and the focal point of the Wolfpen Ridge that includes Blood Mountain that dominates nearby Vogel State Park. There is an observation tower from which you can look over an expansive cloud forest that gets its name from the moisture laden trees due to the clouds the generally engulf the area. On the day we were there it was nothing but blue skies! There is a steep half mile trail from the parking area to the observation tower of for those not able to make the walk there is a shuttle bus for $1.

Directions: From Blairsville, Georgia take US 19 & 129 south for 8 miles. Turn left (east) onto Georgia 180. Go 9 miles to Georgia Spur 180 and turn left (north). Go 3 miles to the Brasstown Bald parking lot.
