Though out of the way, this is a must see in North Georgia as the highest point in the State. Trail up to the summit can be walked or short shuttle ride. The trail has interpretive spots along the hike; be sure to catch the...More

Beautiful view of the mountains and nearby lakes. Hike to the top is very steep, but there is a very nice shuttle that will take you there and back instead if desired.

Great walk up to the top! The attendant told us that they have a scavenger hunt for the kids but they were closing soon. We will get there earlier next time.

Steep winding roads for sure. Once you get to the visitor center you are on level ground and can take the shuttle to the lookout. Be brave, go for the adventure. You will love the view from the lookout.

I would avoid Helen, but there are several inns, motels and such in the area. We found a beautiful cabin on Homeaway. Sort of an alternative version and AirBnB. And of course, you can find lodging through Trip Advisor as... More
