It is bypassed on its northern flank by a major two-lane highway that carries U.S. 76 and Georgia 2 east and west.

It is also the location of NOAA Weather Radio station KXI81, which serves nearby Clayton, Georgia (to the east-northeast), Lake Burton (to the west and southwest), and adjacent areas of northeast Georgia, upstate South Carolina, and western North Carolina. A radio tower and a fire tower are both located atop the mountain.
