View a Smoky Mountain sunrise from atop Brasstown Bald

Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia, and it offers the perfect place from which to watch a Smoky Mountains sunrise. The observation tower atop Brasstown Bald provides a 360-degree panoramic view of the area. It’s just stunning.

The peak of Brasstown Bald stands 4,783 feet, and can be accessed from a state park. A tram runs visitors to the peak during the day, but viewing the sunrise requires a hike up a winding, sometimes steep walkway. It can be difficult, but the view is well worth the effort.
