Just gorgeous even in the winter! My spouse and I decided last minute to view this site! I'm glad we did! The view is nice! The trail was clear and not hard to climb. There are many different trails as we climbed the one in the our pictures! It has nice picnic areas and only cost $3 to get in!

Simply put it was breathtakingly beautiful. The visitor center was very pleasant, and parking was a breeze. They have a small gift shop as well as clean heated bathrooms. You can choose between either paying for the shuttle or hiking the trail up to the summit. It was a little too cold and windy for us to try and leg... More

We had a great time hiking up. The path was mostly paved with benches offering an opportunity to rest. There is also a shuttle up for those not wanting to walk. The views at the top were beautiful. Bring water if walking as there isn't water along the hike.

We went there on a very clear but cold day. What a breath taking view and beautiful hike. The hike up to the observation tower is steep, so if your not up to it, take the van so you can enjoy. The gift shop is little but has some very cute gifts. Make time to go into the history center.... More

Amazing 360 views. Highest elevation in GA. On a clear day you can see as far as downtown Atlanta. A must see while in the area. Great for dog lovers and hikers alike.

I recommend at least that as the walk is nice as well. (But I can see where it would be challenging in some spots walking... More

The drive up is spectacular, if you aren't afraid of heights and winding roads. We highly recommend you see this beautiful mountain.
