Mountain City is an incorporated town in Raybun County, north of Clayton, Ga. The city is located on the Continental Divide at the head of the Little Tennessee River.
Mountain City is home to the Foxfire Museum, which houses exhibits relating to Appalachian life and documents the birth of the Foxfire Magazine and the Foxfire Book series.
Just a short drive from Mountain City on Highway 28 is Black Rock Mountain State Park, the highest state park in Georgia. The Park encompasses some of the most outstanding scenery in Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Roadside overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas, and four hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. Visitors enjoy the summit visitor center for its views, gift shop and picnic tables.
