Brasstown Bald is the highest point in the state of Georgia, with an elevation of 4,784ft (1,459m).  The mountain is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountains, and within the borders of the Blue Ridge Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest.  The mountain is known to the native Cherokee people as Enotah.  It is named for the former Cherokee village of Brasstown, Georgia, located along the upper Brasstown Creek.

 On clear days, the spectacular 360-degree view from atop the mountain allows you to see four states, including Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. The surrounding area is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. The Visitor Information Center, located on the summit of the Bald, offers exhibits, video presentations and interpretive programs.
