There is something to be said for the scenery at Young Harris College. Actually, something has been said for a long, long time. The Enchanted Valley lives up to its name.
Surrounded by peaks such as Bell Mountain and Brasstown Bald, we have beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day. The fall bursts with so much color it almost hurts your eyes, and the mountain roads make for a fun drive. But that doesn't even scratch the surface of the potential of the north Georgia mountains.
The areas surrounding us have hiking trails that lead you to breathtaking waterfalls. Lake Chatuge has a beach just down the road towards Hiawassee, with grills and swings. When the weather gets hot, that is the place to be. Also, the Recreation and Fitness Center will let you rent out canoes and kayaks, and the beach is the perfect place to get out on the water.
There is even tubing in all directions, including Blue Ridge, Helen and Clayton. There is even rafting not far off at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in North Carolina. There are an innumerable number of campsites around the College—just off the lake or up in the mountains—great places to hike, rock climb, kayak, or just lay on the beach.
There is truly much more to the Enchanted Valley than what firsts meets the eye.
