Suches is an unincorporated area in Union County, Georgia. With an altitude of around 3,000 feet, Suches describes itself as "The Valley Above The Clouds"' and is the highest-elevation community in the state of Georgia. Suches is about a mile from the Appalachian Trail (AT) as it goes through Woody Gap. Hikers are seen in town especially in the spring, picking up mail at the local post office and supplies at the general store.

The local school is Woody Gap School, the smallest public school in the state of Georgia. The historical marker in front of the school lists it as the homestead of Joseph E. Brown, governor of Georgia during the Civil War. The current businesses in Suches include Budget Propane, the general store, two motorcycle resorts, Mountain Property Limited (the local realtor) and the U.S. Post Office.

Because Suches is rather isolated, visitors tend to be tourists, such as hikers, bikers, bicyclists, hunters, and fishermen.

Recently, the annual Tour de Georgia bicycle race has gone through Suches on its way to Dahlonega.

Suches is GREAT for all types of outdoor activities.
