From the shores of beautiful Lake Chatuge to the peak of mile high Standing Indian Mountain on the outskirts of the county. Clay County is considered one of the unspoiled hideaways of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ancient mountain trails, tall timber hardwood forest, crystal clear streams make this region a natural mountain experience for all visitors. Its ideal small towns have become a natural haven to the creative minds of artists looking for a place to express the gift of their imaginations. The western and southern views of the mountains before us are breathtaking. There are two overlooks going down this mountain that deserve a stop and look see. The two mountains to the south, Hightower and Eagle Mountain display great perspective in size, making all else appear small and insignificant.

The northern end of Lake Chatuge is in North Carolina while the south side of Lake Chatuge is in North Georgia, about 10 miles away. Its southern shores are in the Chattahoochee National Forest and its northern shores in the Nantahala National Forest.

Clay County is more of an artisan community of both artist, new arrivals and local mountain folks. All are seeking and finding a more a creative environment. Hayesville is the main commerce center for Clay County. It is a quiet town of quaint charm and quality. The classic design of this town is worthy of a movie setting. Perched on the center square is the old red brick courthouse surrounded by a park on three sides. The four main streets are mostly lined with long porch covered sidewalks, containing various types of shops and dining.
