Map It

Located in the southern mountainous regions of Union County’s Blue Ridge Mountain Range, and forming a scenic drive loop is the Russell-Brasstown Scenic Byway.

In my personal opinion this is a four star, 40.6-mile, 360-degree view of what the wilderness lands of central North Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest has to offer in all its glory. Tall mountains with endless vistas, rushing creeks and waterways, an abundance of waterfalls, miles and miles of hiking trails including the southern most section of the Appalachian Trail. You’ll find camping, biking, fly-fishing, picnicking, natural wildlife, and wildflowers, residing in a land of majestic beauty.
