Nestled in the southern tip of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, Rabun County is strategically located in the center of many major metropolitan areas. Knoxville, Charlotte, Augusta and Macon, are all under a 3 hour drive and Atlanta, Greenville, Asheville, and Chattanooga are all within 1 to 2 hours.
The highest point in Rabun County and the second highest in Georgia is Rabun Bald at 4,696 feet with surrounding mountains ranging in height from 2,500 to 4,500 feet. In late May and June, laurel blooms along the creek banks, in coves, on cliffs and on hilltops, and rhododendron blooms in July. In October, the mountains take on a profusion of color as the leaves begin to change for autumn.
Make sure to put Sky Valley on your list of places to see while visiting the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina. You will not be disappointed.
