At 4,784 feet above mean sea level, Brasstown Bald is Georgia’s tallest mountain peak. A bald is so named because of the dearth of trees near the summit.
Unlike the higher mountains of the Western United States, this is not due to being above the tree line but is believed to be the result of severe climatic chances in the high elevations.
You can ascend the bulk of the mountain by vehicle, but the last six tenths of a mile requires a rigorous walk along a paved albeit sometimes steep trail.
On a clear day, you can see as far the skyscrapers in Atlanta to the south and the Great Smoky Mountains to the north.
Brasstown Bald is a great place to spend an afternoon in the Georgia Mountains! If you have never been there, I highly recommend that you plan a trip soon!
