A blue line running through this historic copper mining town marks the state line between Copperhill, Tennessee and McCaysville, Georgia. Early miners would use the stone steps dotting the hillside to walk home after parking their cars below; the hills and turns were too steep for early cars to maneuver. The town is a regular stop for the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and the Hiwassee River Rail Adventures (point 64). GeorgiaÂ’s Toccoa River enters Tennessee here and changes its name to the Ocoee.
