Brasstown Bald in Blairsville GA

Brasstown Bald TowerA short drive away is Brasstown Bald in Blairsville GA. It is managed by the US Forest Service and is the highest point in the state of Georgia. At 4,784 feet in elevation, it is home to some incredible mountain views in every direction. You can see four states from it’s peak: Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Incredibly enough, Cherokee County NC has two points on the county corners that reach 5,040 feet in elevation (the highest points in the county), yet none are easily accessible. That makes Brasstown Bald that much more of a treat because it can easily be reached by car on a paved road with a transport van taking you to the summit. There are many more miles of trails you can walk to really enjoy all that nature has to offer.

Testimonial from John’s Parents

Jack and Tina PoltrockJohn’s parent’s just bought a home in Eagle Mountain in the Martins Creek Community of Murphy, NC. Here’s what they had to say about their experience:

We bought a mountain chalet in February 2008.  The Poltrock team did an outstanding job of helping us through the process.  Both are outgoing with excellent ties to the community.  We found them to be honest, hard working and willing to listen. They showed us several properties after listening to what we were looking for.  They are a young couple with a strong focus on customer service.  If anyone is interested in purchasing land or a mountain home in North Carolina or Georgia, my husband and I strongly recommend the Poltrock team.

Thanks mom! It’d be terrible if my own mother couldn’t endorse The POLTROCK TEAM! Although I have to admit, the way you wrote it, I wouldn’t have known it came from my own mother. We hope you enjoy your investment for years to come!
