Located in the Northwest corner of Georgia, sand lookout, and pigeon mountains belong to the geological province known as Appalachian, or Cumberland, plateau. The Appalachian Plateau is a mountainous region with many streams and river flowing through them.
The Appalachian Plateau sits 1,800 to 2,000 feet above sea level. In this region you can go hang gliding, hiking, camping, and white water rafting. Lookout mountain, Cloudland Canyon, and Sand Mountain are in this region.
An old coal-mining railroad cut runs Lula Lake and Falls in water Country Railroad Cut. Rocky layers in the Plateau are nearly horizontal, and both anthracite and bituminous coal are extracted by drift mining.
