Georgia's Blue Ridge and Cohutta Mountains

 The Blue Ridge Mountains begin in South Central Pennsylvania and extend south, joining the Appalachian Mountains which extend all the way to Alabama. The Blue Ridge Mountain Range comprises most of the Appalachian Mountains. This unique mountain range offers everything from rolling foothills to the highest peaks in the Eastern United States • over 6,000 feet.

The famous Appalachian Trail begins at Springer Mountain in beautiful Fannin County, Georgia and extends more than 2,000 miles north to Mount Katahdin in Maine, passing through 14 states along the way. Hikers normally take 6 months to complete the trek. With about 80 miles of Appalachian Trail just in Georgia, you're sure to find some excellent backpacking adventures in Fannin County.

The Cohutta Mountains are a smaller range located west of the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains. You may have heard them referred to as the Great Smokey Mountains, the name used further north. The Cohuttas are actually quite a bit older than their Appalachian neighbors.

Area Directory
The Cherokee considered the Cohuttas to be the "poles of the shed," holding up the sky in this, their "enchanted land." Many Cherokee would farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains, leaving them during the winter and staying at the Cherokee village of Aska, or "winter home." This beautiful area of Fannin County is known as the gateway to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
