Nestled next to the southern-most point of the famous Appalachian Trail, Pickens County is geographically positioned between downtown Atlanta and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Jasper, our county seat, is outlined by gorgeous mountain skylines and earns its title as The First Mountain City. Many say our community and schools are the best kept secret in North Georgia.
