Vogel State Park

One of Georgia’s oldest and most beloved state parks, Vogel is located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Driving from the south, visitors pass through Neel Gap, a beautiful mountain pass near Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Vogel is particularly popular during the fall when the Blue Ridge Mountains transform into a rolling blanket of red, yellow and gold leaves. Hikers can choose from a variety of trails, including the popular 4-mile Bear Hair Gap loop, an easy lake loop that leads to Trahlyta Falls, and the challenging 13-mile Coosa Backcountry Trail.

Union County Farmers Market

Union County takes pride in our agricultural roots. In 2007, County Commissioner Lamar Paris organized a committee to oversee the development of a local market that would give our growers, big and small, a place to sell their goods. It was decided that artisans, beekeepers to bakers and potters to painters, could also sell their handmade goods. So when we boast “Homegrown and Handmade”, you know that you are purchasing products that have been produced right here in this area! www.ucfarmersmarket.com

Union County Saddle Club

The Union County Saddle Club was organized in 1986 in Blairsville, Georgia, by a group of interested people under encouragement of the Blairsville Kiwanis Club. The purpose of the Saddle Club is to promote the equine industry and recreation. Our top priority is to benefit the health, safety, and welfare of the horse and rider of all skill levels. The Union County Saddle Club is dedicated to adding value to our fellow horsemen and to our local community as well. We are a non-profit [Section 501 (c) 3] community based, family oriented organization comprised of all volunteer members that are dedicated to the education and skill development in all disciplines pertaining to equine activities. www.unioncountysaddleclub.org
