If you enjoy the outdoors, you will love Blairsville and Union County! Find yourself experiencing some of Georgia’s most beautiful landmarks, like Brasstown Bald, the Appalachian Trail (AT), - including Mountain Crossings - the only portion of the trail that passes through a man made structure and Vogel State Park. Make a splash in Lake Nottely or our creeks, rivers or waterfalls; take in the captivating scenery; visit our weekly Farmers Market or enjoy one of the many area festivals - Scottish Highland Games and Sorghum Festival are held annually at Meeks Park .
Blairsville is located in the heart of North Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains and considered one of Georgia’s best kept secrets. Less than a 3 hour drive from cities like Atlanta, Chattanooga, or Asheville, it is worlds apart – an authentic pre-Civil War mountain community located deep in the heart of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest and enveloped in North Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
It is a setting that lends itself, beautifully, to plenty of outdoor adventures. Beloved by water babies for its pristine bodies of water, Blairsville is home to the 4,180-acre Lake Nottely with 106 miles of shoreline. This popular lake is great for those who love boating, fishing and jet skiing. There are marinas and several public boat ramps that offer access at different points on Lake Nottely. County-maintained Poteete Creek Park offers lake access, a white sand beach swimming area, campground, boating ramps, picnic facilities, bathhouse and beach area, pavilion, and public restrooms. Just south of downtown Blairsville is Vogel State Park – one of Georgia’s oldest, most popular state parks – has a 20-acre lake and swimming beach plus hiking trails and a waterfall. Helton Creek Falls has two beautiful falls set in Blairsville’s deep hardwood forest with a total drop of 100 feet.
Almost anywhere you go in Union County, you will find a hiking trail. Visitors may choose easy routes through our picturesque Meeks Park or choose a hardcore trail that traverses streams, scales mountains and descends into deep gorges. The most famous trail in the area is the Appalachian Trail (AT). Accessible from several locations within Union County, the AT winds 80 miles through the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. There is pure seduction to the outdoor pursuits of Blairsville-Union County; this Georgia gem is uncrowded, serene and overwhelmingly picturesque. From its high peaks to its green valleys to its verdant forests to its bubbling creeks and streams, Blairsville acts as a lightning rod for those who want an outdoors escape. Shadowed by Brasstown Bald – Georgia’s highest peak – and the ancient Blue Ridge brimming with Cherokee Indian lore, it’s easy to spend a few days exploring all there is do in this magical mountain town.
