Suches is a small community and area of northern Georgia situated in Union County. It is called "The Valley Above the Clouds," and at 3,000 feet elevation, it's one of the highest-elevation communities in the state. Suches is part of the Chattahoochee National Forest and just one mile from the Appalachian Trail. Hikers are often seen in town, where they buy supplies at the general store and pick up mail at the Suches post office. The community is home to the smallest public school in the state. It's a rather isolated area, but residents and visitors like it that way and are drawn to the clean mountain air and beautiful scenery. Recreational activities in the Suches area include hiking, fishing, mountain biking, camping, wildlife viewing, scenic tours, birdwatching and picnicking. There is no charge to visit the Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery and no license is required to fish the Black Mountain Trout Ponds and Trophy Trout Farm. Other nearby scenic areas include Sosebee Cove, Sea Creek Falls, Chestatee Overlook and the Swinging Bridge on the Toccoa River. Suches is host to an annual Indian Summer Festival and a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in early December.
