YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. -- Just in time for Mother Nature's brilliant
show of fall color, the Brasstown Valley Resort here completed the
extension of its Brasstown Trail.
Now eight miles long, the popular interpretive hiking trail is
on the resort grounds, and much of it moves through the
Chattahoochee National Forest. The extension project included the
addition of boardwalks and bridges built over wetland areas and
Interpretive stops along Brasstown Trail identify trees, plants,
landmarks and wildlife and their habitats along the way. More than
200 species of birds have been documented in the area, and October
brings the songbird migration to north Georgia.
Brasstown Valley Resort's Blue Ridge Mountain setting is a good
base from which to take in the autumn colors.
In addition, it offers golf on Scottish links; four lighted
tennis courts; fishing for rainbow, brown and brook trout;
whitewater rafting or horseback riding.
BVR has a main lodge with 102 rooms and suites as well as eight
log cottages. Through Thanksgiving, rates are from $149 per
