At the wind-worn summit of 3,640-foot Black Rock Mountain, a flagstone terrace looks out over a grand Appalachian panorama: If there’s no fog, you can see clear to the South Carolina Piedmont 80 miles away and as far as the Great Smokies to the north. The highest state park in Georgia, Black Rock Mountain State Park offers hiking trails and accommodations in addition to the splendid vistas. Set off in a ring at the top of the mountain are 10 fully furnished spacious cottages updated with electricity, heat, and air conditioning. The cottages cost $85-250 per night, sleep 8 to 10 people, and are available for rent mid-March through mid-December. There’s also a pair of campgrounds. The park is three miles north of Clayton, well signed to the west of US-441. For information or for reservations for the cabins or the campgrounds, contact the visitors center (706/746-2141, reservations 800/864-7275) near the summit.
