Brasstown Valley ~ The Enchanted Valley

Brasstown Overlook

The picturesque Brasstown Valley and the Enchanted Valley of Lake Chatuge are two of the more incredible sites to behold in the Blue Ridge Smoky Mountains. Unlike the Enchanted Valley whose valley floor is mostly covered in lake water, Brasstown Valley is that perfect accent with a lush green valley floor and mountains towering above. It’s like having the best of both worlds in one package, with each valley conveniently divided along a mountain ridge with a low gap connecting the two valleys along US 76. Though relative by location they are visibly completely different yet one and the same when it comes to beauty and community spirit.

The Brasstown Valley Scenic Overlook along US 76 next to the golf course offers a birds-eye view of the historic valley. From the overlook low rolling hills flow northward across the valley with mountains rising along the distance horizon. To the south the great heights of Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest mountain towers high over the valley below.

Today Brasstown Valley is everything it should be for visitors looking for that perfect getaway. Low rolling hills along with open fields and meadows are dotted with homesteads and a few newer homes sprinkled across the landscape. Along the ridgeline to the east with great views of their own are a line vacation homes and full-time residences. The quaint college town of Young Harris lies just to the west of the overlook and a mountain vineyard lies off to the north. To the south an impressive mountain resort and championship golf course bearing the valleys name, rests along the lower slopes of the mighty Brasstown Range.

At the overlook there are several plaques depicting the natural and historic wealth of valley. One plaque tells of how cherished this valley homeland was and still is to the Cherokee people. While constructing the resort’s golf course, an extensive Native American village was uncovered calling for a temporary halt in construction. More than 400,000 artifacts were found causing the developer to redesign the golf course to respect, honor and preserve the history uncovered at this valley site. An exhibit and display of some of the artifacts including early mountain settler artifacts are located in the resort.

Another fascinating archeological site also free of charge is located in a low mountain gap along the western edge of the valley, the Trackrock Archeological Area, famed for its ancient cryptic symbols carved on several large boulders.

Other points of interest in and around the Brasstown Valley can be located with the Highlander's Mtn Top Georgia Mobile App, including Cupid Falls at Corn Creek Preserve, a quiet picnic spot next to a waterfall, native plant garden area, picnic tables and short hiking trail.

Brasstown Valley in Towns County, Georgia is that great getaway destination if your looking for leisure strolls or longer challenging hikes, an observatory, a fine arts center and local fine arts gallery, horseback riding, a spa, golf, excellent lodging, fine dining and eateries and what some folks would refer to as having a front porch rocking chair with their name on it.
