Georgia Reopens Georgia Route 348 Richard B. Russell Scenic Highway (scenic route to Brasstown Bald)

Georgia has reopened the scenic route to Brasstown Bald. The route was temporarily closed in March
It is one of the highest roads in the state which hits 3,800 feet at Hogpen Gap. It did not directly affect access to Brasstown Bald but was one of the scenic approaches from the south.

Most people coming from the south came up U.S. 129 or State Route 17 but 348 was the most scenic.
