Bell Mountain


Bell Mountain is a popular hiking destination located near Hiawassee, Georgia. Offering 360-degree views of the surrounding mountain ranges and Lake Chatuge, Bell Mountain is a favorite spot for hikers and nature enthusiasts.

From the parking lot, climb up the easily accessible rocky trails to the top of the summit and breathe in the fresh mountain air. The other side of the parking lot offers a staircase leading to balconies overlooking the steep cliffs below. Though the area has been vandalized by graffiti, this backdrop is the perfect photo opportunity!
