Fort Mountain

Fort Mountain State Park

Fort Mountain derives its name from an ancient 855-foot-long rock wall, which stands on the highest point of the mountain.  The mysterious wall is said to have been built by Indians as a fortification against other more hostile Indians or for ancient ceremonies.  Situated in the Chattahoochee National Forest close to the Cohutta Wilderness area, this park offers a variety of outdoor activities for all to enjoy. 

Hikers will find some of the most beautiful trails in Georgia.  Most wind through hardwood forest and blueberry thickets, occasionally crossing streams and providing spectacular vistas.  During the summer, children will enjoy the sand beach located on a clear mountain lake.  There is also camping and cabin rentals and mini-golf are available.  Small parking fee charged ($3).
