Brasstown Bald is Georgia's highest elevation, rising 4784 feet above sea level. It is part of the Blue Ridge Mountain chain of the Appalachian Mountain range. The summit is crowned with a stone tower and observation deck from which four states - Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina - are visible on a clear day. Originally a project of the Civilian Conservation Corps the present site was completed in 1965. To see the marker, visitors may ask the friendly ranger for access. It is located behind a locked gate at the tower's base.
