Brasstown Bald, Arkaquah Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At 4,784 feet, Brasstown Bald Mountain is the highest point in Georgia. One short path to the top of the peak from the visitor center and three long trails down the sides of the mountain provide the hikes in this trail complex. The long trails are the featured hikes. The first of those is the Arkaquah Trail, which leads down the western slope.

Hiking down Brasstown Bald is fascinating because of the elevation change. Both plant and animal life are noticeable different from other areas in the mountains."
