Hayesville and Brasstown

Packed with mountain biking, hiking, boating, and fishing spots, Hayesville and greater Clay County embody the phrase “getting away from it all.”  Spend a day on Lake Chatuge, and then head to town for museums, shops, restaurants and yearly festivals.  While in the area, check out the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown for classes and live music, and the Goldhagen Glass Blowing Gallery in Hayesville for great souvenirs.
