The Towns/Union County area of the North Georgia Mountains is a hiker's paradise. There are many hiking opportunities, with difficulty levels ranging from easy to very strenuous - something for everyone! The Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine, runs through a portion of Towns and Union Counties.  Towns County and Hiawassee are part of the AT Community partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.  For more information on the AT Community program, click here
