Black Rock Mountain State Park, named for its sheer cliffs of dark-colored biotite gneiss, encompasses some of the most outstanding country in Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Located astride the Eastern Continental Divide at an altitude of 3,640 feet, Black Rock Mountain is the highest state park in Georgia. Numerous scenic overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas of the Southern Appalachians, and several hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, cascading streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. The summit visitor center and picnic tables are popular with travelers in Northeast Georgia. Facilities include 1,743 acres and a 17-acre lake; 48 tent, trailer, and RV campsites with cable TV hookups; 12 walk-in campsites; four backcountry campsites; 10 cottages; two picnic shelters; pioneer group campground; and a visitors center.
