The towns of Clayton, Mountain City and Dillard sit high in Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains, at the extreme northeastern corner of the state, near the state line with both North and South Carolina.
The areas' foremost attraction is Black Rock Mountain State Park. Named for its sheer dark-colored Biotite Gneiss cliffs, Black Rock Mountain is the highest state park in Georgia, towering 3,640 feet above sea level. The park offers campsites and cottages and also has a 17-acre Lake and a visitor center.
Other area attractions include the Foxfire Museum in Mountain City dedicated to the life of mountaineers who settled this area over 150 years ago, Moccasin Creek State Park on the shores of Lake Burton, Sky Valley Golf Course and country club and Kingwood Golf club.
