Blairsville GA's Blood Mountain Shelter   The summit of Blood Mountain with an elevation of 4,458 feet is the highest peak on the Georgia section of the Appalachain Trail and the sixth-tallest mountain in Georgia. On the top of Blood Mountain, there is a two-room shelter that was built in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Blood Mountain Shelter is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is still used by hikers today. This is an exciting accomplishment and another WIN for the Blairsville-Union County Appalachian Trail Community.

Mark your calendars for the Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games for this weekend! Each year the Scottish Festival is started off on Friday with the Kilted Golf Classic at Butternut Creek Golf Course and the Ceilidh Dinner. Saturday and Sunday, June 8-9, 2013 follow and are filled with the sounds of bagpipes, drums and the colorful display of flags and tartans throughout the lovely setting along the creek at Meeks Park in Blairsville, GA.   So Many Clan Tents…What is a Clan? The Gaelic word Clan means family or tribe.  Each clan has its own tartan which is worn in a kilt or scarf and members are fiercely loyal to the group. The reason for the strength of the Scottish clans can be summarized in a quote from a clansman who said, “I owe my allegiance to the land of my birth, but ...

Helton Creek Falls in Blairsville GAis one of the best kept secrets Helton Creek Falls in Blairsville GA is one of the best kept secrets . It also happens to be one of the easiest Falls to get down to and the lower and upper falls are just amazing!If you’ve been to Vogel State Park its just a little ways down the road from it off  Helton Creek Road. From the small parking lot you’ll see the trailhead marked by a simple sign and arrow. This trail descends quickly, but not too steep, to a mountain laurel cove fed by Helton Creek rich with moisture-loving plant life. Many of the improvements in this area date back to the work done by the Civilian Conservation Corps. As the path climbs you’ll come across a boardwalk over fragile riverine zones. Stairs on the left descend to the bottom of th...

Vogel State Park in Blairsville, GAis one of our favorite places to visit! Vogel State Park in Blairsville, GA is one of our favorite places to visit. Whether you’re wanting to picnic, hike, camp or just walk around the lake, Vogel State Park is the perfect place for the whole family to visit. We wanted to share some photos from our most recent visit out to Vogel State Park with you...

   Back in Time in the Blairsville GA mountains   Back in Time in the Blairsville GA mountains. Just off the town round-about as you travel down Hwy 129 you’ll see some beautiful scenery, creeks, rivers and US Forest Service land. Along the way you’ll also see a great little place right along the Nottely River in Blairsville GA. Just on the river is a great little place to stop for a bite to eat and take some pictures next to the old timey cars and tractors. No matter where you go in the NC, GA or TN mountains you’ll always find great places and scenery.  Lee & Carol Barbour ~ The Mountain Living Teamwww.MountainLivingTeam.comServing Murphy and Hayesville NC and Hiawassee, Blairsville and Blue Ridge GA and Copperhill, TN

Union County, GA has some great outdoor activities here in the North GA mountains and the Butternut Creek Golf Course is just one of them. These are the views of the course from the Community Center. We have our Northeast GA Board of Realtors monthly meetings here and the food is always fabulous.   The Community Center also has the Tourism/Pro Shop, The View Grill, Confrence Rooms and Banquet Room as well as the Union County Chamber of Commerce. A wonderful setting and venue for all occasions. Enjoying the four mild seasons in the mountains is just one of the things we love most about living here.
