The North Georgia Mountains

The mountains in this region are in the Blue Ridge mountain chain that ends in Georgia.  At over 1 billion years of age, the Blue Ridge mountains are among the oldest mountains in the United States.  The mountains in this region are also a part of the vast system of North American mountains known as the Appalachian Mountains that spans most of the United States longitudally along the eastern areas of the nation and terminates in Alabama.

The region is known for its ruggedness and scenic beauty. The native Cherokee who lived in these mountains called them ᏌᏆᎾᎦ (Sah-ka-na'-ga), translated; "The Great Blue Hills of God." Large portions of the North Georgia mountains are included in the more than 750,000 acres that comprises the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Location & Directions

The North Georgia Mountains consist of small towns that bring you back to a simpler time. While in town you say "hello" and experience community fellowship with people you hardly know.  Life is less "busy" in the mountains.  You take time for nature, camping, and hiking the Appalachian Trail.  There are beautiful backdrops everywhere you look.  While traveling on a mountain road you can see deer at any given moment.  Black bear can be seen in their natural environment.  A lake with a mountain range in the background has the ability to hypnotize anyone into a state of tranquility.
