The quaint mountain community of Clayton, Georgia, was founded in 1821 and is nestled among Black Rock Mountain, Screamer Mountain and other Blue Ridge Mountain peaks. In addition to its gorgeous scenery, Clayton is blessed with a beautiful downtown area filled with unique arts, crafts, clothing and antique shops in addition to lodging, delectable restaurants and a cultural center.

Clayton residents and visitors enjoy the beauty of the Chattahoochee National forest as well as whitewater rafting, canoeing and kayaking on the untamed and nationally designated “Wild & Scenic” Chattooga River.

Beautiful mountain overlooks, biking, hiking, camping and horseback riding trails such as the historical 40+ mile long Bartram Trail are abundant and waiting to be relished.
