Cohutta Overlook

Located on Highway 52 between Ellijay and Chatsworth, Georgia, the Cohutta Overlook offers a rare vista of the nearby Cohutta Wilderness and the surrounding mountains.



Since none of the mountains in Georgia are above the tree line, most scenic overlooks have to be man-made, sas was the case with this one. The trees were cleared off of a small knob, and a trail was constructed up to a viewing area on the top of the mound.


Not only does this overlook offer some incredible views, it can also effectively function as the trailhead for two of the nearby mountain bike rides: P3 and Tatum Lead.

These photographs were taken in early December, 2010. You can still see the snow on the mountain tops from a recent storm.
