Geography of Rabun County

Affectionately referred to as the place “where Spring spends the Summer,” Rabun County is known for its mild climate and extraordinary natural beauty. Located in the blue ridge mountains of the Appalachian Mountain Chain, Rabun County is blessed with thousands upon thousands of acres of woodland, streams, high ridges, and fertile valleys. Situated in the extreme northeastern corner of the State, the County is bounded by North Carolina on the north & South Carolina and the Chattooga River on the east, Habersham County on the south, and Towns County and the famous Appalachian Trail on the west. The County also contains the Little Tennessee river, flowing north, and the Tallulah River , which terminates in the Tallulah Gorge in the southernmost tip of the County. Sixty-three percent of the county is owned by the US forest Service and ten percent is owned by the Georgia Power Company.

The Majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is enhanced by favorable weather conditions, with average temperatures of 58.5 degrees in January and 76 degrees in August with as many as 70 inches of precipitation per year. Winter brings an occasional snowstorm. Wildflowers emerge in spring, along with new vegetative growth. In early summer, native Flaming Azaleas, Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron bloom in succession. Finally, Fall marks the changing of leaves.

The Geologic history of the County includes violent mountain building during the Triassic Geologic Period and subsequent massive earth moving erosion which smoothed the craggy mountains into today's rolling ridges and valleys. Mineral resources in the county include granite, feldspar, mica, kyanite, talc, soapstone, quartzite, pyrite and gold.
