Brasstown Bald: Highest Mountain in Georgia

We decided to do some sightseeing before tomorrow so we visited the highest point, the highest mountain, in Georgia from where you can see four states.

Brasstown Bald. Real name is Enotah in Cherokee before the land was stolen under Andrew Jackson who ignored a Supreme Court ruling setting aside the removal. Then came the Trail of Tears.

Now it has an asphalt walking trail or you can ride up in a van. White people and semi-bored tourist.

Hiking Trail to the Top

Observation Tower

We went on this side trail aways, but not far. We were told that further in it gets hard, rated difficult, with a rock scramble.

We saw patches of black bear fur on this trail plus two rude hikers. One a Brit or some other close UK relative. You know the kind that resents other people invading their special place?
