The area around Hiawassee and Young Harris, Georgia is heaven on earth for hikers. Hiking trails range from easy to strenuous, so there is something for everyone. The Appalachian Trail (AT), which stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine, runs through part of Towns County. In fact, Towns County and the community of Hiawassee are part of the AT Community partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. For more information on the AT Community program, click here.
In addition to the AT, favorite hiking trails include the half-mile trail to the top of Brasstown Bald, which is paved but steep, and allows you to explore the top of Georgia’s highest mountain.
Beautiful Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa offers more than nine miles of interpretive hiking trails, known as the Miller Trek . The Jackrabbit Mountain Bike and Hiking Trail System in nearby Hayesville, North Carolina offers about 15 miles of singletrack trails , many of which border Lake Chatuge.

Beautiful Brasstown Bald, rising 4784 feet above sea level, is Georgia’s highest mountain and only a few minutes from downtown Hiawassee, Georgia. Its lofty perch makes it the first location in Georgia to see our famous fall colors. On clear days, the spectacular 360-degree view from atop the mountain allows you to see four states: Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. The surrounding area is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, with the mountain laurel and rhododendron blooms lighting up the mountains in season. The visitor information center at the summit of the Bald offers exhibits, video presentations, and interpretive programs.
