Thrills and spills in Clayton

Clayton has a temperate climate, with summers from June through August seeing high temperatures averaging 80 °F. More moderate temperatures are seen in spring, from March through May, and fall, from September through November, while winter average temperatures can fall below freezing.

Clayton—in tune with nature

Clayton is in mountainous north-east Georgia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachian chain. The town sits at a height of just under 2000 feet above sea level and is at the base of Black Rock Mountain. The area is covered by the Chattahoochee National Forest, which spans nearly 750,000 acres, giving Clayton vacation rentals a real country feel. Within the forest, hidden waterfalls can be found, such as the Sliding Rock Cascade, popular with the locals. In the early 20th century, deer and trout had virtually disappeared from the area; thankfully both have since been successfully reintroduced.
