Nestled in the green foothills of the vast Chattahoochee National Forest at the base of the Appalachian Mountain Range, Georgia’s Gilmer County abounds with forests, wildlife, clean air and sparkling rivers, lakes and streams.

Convenient to the Southeast’s major cities, yet offering the beauty and peace of the north Georgia mountains, this is life at its best. This is Gilmer County.

The county’s apple and peach orchards and dairy farms create picturesque pastoral scenes across the valleys in a changing seasonal panorama: the bright beauty of apple blossoms and wild flowers in the spring give way to the lush green of summer crops and deep forest foliage only to be replaced by the rust, gold, red and green hues of autumn leaves and bright red apples and the silvery white simplicity of the winter landscape.
