An Appalachian Trail Community. The Chattahoochee National Forest in the county boasts scenic attractions such as Helton Creek Falls, Trackrock Archaeological Area - ancient Indian petroglyphs, and Brasstown Bald - Georgia’s highest peak. The visitor center at the summit includes an observation deck, interpretive exhibits about the area's geology, ecology, climate, weather, history and culture. The Russell-Brasstown Scenic Byway and the Southern Highroads Trail pass through pass through the county offering beautiful vistas and outstanding scenery. Lakes Nottely and Winfield Scott offer plenty of recreational activities. Mountain Crossing is the only point where a manmade structure overhangs the Appalachian Trail. Nearby Vogel State Park with its CCC Museum is a longtime favorite for camping or a cozy cabin retreat. Play golf, fish, go horseback riding, check out the local grist or sorghum mill, shop for crafts and antiques, visit one of several museums or just relax and enjoy the mountain vistas. Make sure to visit during the Scottish Festival & Highland Games.
