Lover´s Leap

The rock that juts out from the side of Lookout Mountain in Georgia gets its name from the Cherokee legend of two young lovers, a brave named Sautee and a maiden named Nacoochee, from two feuding tribes. According to the legend, Sautee was captured and thrown from the top of Lover’s Leap. Nacoochee, distressed from the loss, jumped to her own death. Rock City has claimed that it is possible to see seven states from the top of Lover’s Leap aka High Falls.
